Edward Livingston's Letter on the Preparations of a Criminal Code of Law

About this Document

As parish representative to the state legislature, Livingston was selected in 1821 to prepare a criminal code of law. He worked to revise the state's civil code and code of practice due to the fact that the French, Spanish, and American laws on the books were often found to be in conflict and ratification was needed.
