In selecting the documents, emphasis was placed on those highlighting the evolution and course of Professor Crépeau's career. The fonds consists of 8 series: 1. Teaching activities; 2. Research activities; 3. Associations, professional orders and external organizations; 4. Research activities; 5. Publications; 6. Work office; 7. Studies; 8. Documentation; 9. Honours; 10. Research; and 11. Work diaries and business cards.

The date range of the documents covers the entire career of Professor Crépeau, from the beginning of his studies to the end of his studies in the late 1940s to the end of his career in 2011. It is important to note that the correspondence is divided among the different series. Client files from his law practice have been removed.
