Excerpt from Speeches, Arguments, and Miscellaneous Papers of David Dudley Field, Vol. 3David Dudley Field was born in 1805 in Connecticut and died in New York City in 1894, having achieved in his lifetime the honor of being known as "The Father of United States legal reform."He spent his whole life campaigning to bring about codification of common-law procedure in New York State. While the codification was never completely adopted in New York, the codes that he worked on were extensively adopted in many other States and other countries. His arguments for codifying common-law procedure were published in a pamphlet entitled The Reorganization of the Judiciary. This pamphlet was instrumental in persuading the New York Constitutional Convention of 1847 to favorably consider a codification of the law.In an 1894 article written on the occasion of Field's death, the author admiringly stated that "his work will never be forgotten because it forms a conspicuous part of the progress of man himself toward that intelligent regulation of life which is the object of all law." The author goes on to say that "the admirable qualifications of Mr. Field for the great tasks which he accomplished would not have been complete without his advanced conception of the law itself. He was not a case lawyer. He appeared to survey law in the direct relation which the whole and each part bears to public welfare."About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
