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.
