The Allard Law History Project is particularly grateful to Dr. Pue for his extraordinary contribution to the recorded history of this law school. His book, Law School: The Story of Legal Education in British Columbia (Vancouver: University of British Columbia, Faculty of Law, 1995). [Call Number: KE289 .P83 1995 (LC)] serves as a valuable resource for this project and for other legal historians.
