Lawyers who knew a retired Federal Court of Appeal judge who died in late August remembered him as a brilliant legal scholar and a deeply caring person.

Colleagues and friends lauded Allen Linden as a pioneer of Canadian tort law, who taught internationally and wrote extensively. “A legacy of achievements can be attributable to one’s inherent wisdom or amicable humour or relentless passion or a range of other character traits,” says University of Ottawa law professor Jeremy de Beer, who served as Linden’s law clerk between 2001 and 2002.
