City of Calgary. Law Department fonds

  • CA ccg ccg-2054
  • Fonds
  • 1909-1975

The fonds consists of the City Solicitor's records, as opposed to the records of other divisions within the department as it is currently structured. Most of the records were part of a single central filing system with nine series, numbered 1-9. Each of these series used the same sort of file coding system which is discussed below as part of each of the series descriptions. The records described in this inventory reflect the general legal work which has always been carried on by the City Solicitor and the Law Department. This is the work that is now done by the Law Division of the department. The Archives does not hold any records from the Claims Division or the Insurance Division. General Subject Files (6 series in the Law Department's filing system) comprise the largest portion of the Law Department records in the Archives. These records reflect the general work of the City Solicitor and his department over a period of more than fifty years and subjects reflect a broad range of internal and external issues. Subsequent series are much smaller. The litigation files (1 series) are case files of the City Solicitor and his staff relating to lawsuits in which The City was involved. The extent of these records in the Archives reflects only a small portion of litigation files created over time. Many more remain in semi- active storage.
