This Article is a study of the relationship between two academic lawyers of the twentieth century, David Daube and Sir Thomas Broun Smith, with particular focus on their period as colleagues at Aberdeen University in Scotland in the early 1950s. The Article also considers their position in relation to the then-recent experience of World War II and Nazi Germany. It highlights the importance of the relationship for the development of modern academic law in Scotland. The Appendices publish the texts of relevant correspondence between the two men.
