The late Professor Gerald Fridman was one of Canada’s most respected and influential legal scholars, and a prolific author of more than a dozen legal texts and more than 100 articles, major papers, case notes, and book reviews. He was renowned in the fields of contracts, agency, torts, the sale of goods, and restitution, and his work has been cited in more than 50 decisions of the Supreme Court of Canada and in hundreds of lower-court decisions.
The 16 papers included in this collection were presented at a symposium hosted by Western Law in 2018. Marking the passing of Professor Gerald Fridman and celebrating his many contributions to the study of private law, the articles touch on virtually every aspect of Professor Fridman’s academic work.
The collection is divided into four parts:
- Part I: The Law of Contract
- Part II: The Law of Torts
- Part III: The Law of Unjust Enrichment, Restitution, and Trusts
- Part IV: Commercial Law: Sale of Goods and Agency
The collection also includes a foreword by Supreme Court of Canada Justice Russell Brown.
