Simon van Leeuwen (1626-1682)

graduated at the Leiden University in 1649. Het then started practice as an Advocate in the Hague and later at Leiden. He held several minor posts and in 1681 he was appointed assistant registrat of the Supreme Court at the Hague. He earned his fame with his writings, Paratitula iuris novissimi (1652), Censura Forensis theoretico-practica (1678), and above all , Het Rooms-Hollands-Regt (1664), dealing fully with the law of Holland and briefly with Roman Law. Though never highly regarded in Holland as a scholar, his works have been widely spread and were translated and reprinted many times untill the end of the 18th century. His works have been extensively cited in South Africa, and were given statutory place as subsidiary authority in the South African Republic of 1859.
Other Publications by van Leeuwen are:
Proces Crimineel (1677), Manier van procederen in civile en criminele saaken (1666), Batavia Illustrata (1685).
