Bouwens, a native of Louvain, was a lawyer and state official in Liege. He ended his career in the service of that city's Prince-Archbishop. Iuris Iustitiaeque, his only publication, is a comprehensive treatise on judicial administration, the practice of law and judges in Roman law. Collegii Publici is an anthology of dissertations presented to Sinold Schutz at the Universities of Marburg and Giessen. The subjects of these dissertations include Roman law, treaties, the Thirty Years' War and procedure. Complete in itself, this is the second and final volume of De Statu Rei Romanae, a work published in 1641. Bouwens: OCLC locates 14 copies, 1 in North America (UC-Berkeley Law School).
