More than any State chief justice, Sir Frederick Jordan KCMG left an enduring legacy of jurisprudence spanning all areas of the general law.

To those facing prosecution or curtailment of their businesses during the Second World War, Jordan would prove the most libertarian judge of his era. Jordan was passionate about legal education, on and off the Bench.

A bibliophile fluent in six languages, he also wrote extra-judicially on a wide range of topics, expressing the strongest of views about cinema, jazz, “old school ties” and modern art.
