Bruce Ziff's Legal History
This article explores Bruce Ziff’s life and career as legal history. It charts Ziff’s biography, journey in law, and contributions to Canadian legal history. Doing so provides a snapshot of Canadian legal education in transition: from the modest scholarly environment Ziff encountered as a Canadian law student in the 1970s, to the generation of legal scholars he joined in the 1980s, determined to push Canadian law teaching and scholarship in new directions. Canadian legal history came of age in this period as scholars, Ziff included, found in Canada’s legal past deeper stories to tell about law's life on the ground, and exciting new avenues of research for the future.
