LAUSSAT, Antony, lawyer, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1806; died there, 2 November, 1833. His parents, Pierre Antoine and Jane de Laussat, were from Navarre. When the father became a citizen of the United States, he dropped the prefix from his name. The son was graduated at the University of Pennsylvania in ]821, studied law under Peter Duponeeau, and was admitted to the bar, 1 February, 1827. Before this he had become a member of the law academy of Philadelphia, where most of the young lawyers of that day were trained. While yet a student, he wrote "An Essay on Equity in Pennsylvania" (Philadelphia, 1826), which attracted much attention, was published by order of the academy, and received high praise from Chancellor Kent and Chief-Justice Marshall. Judge George Sharswood, in an address before the law academy, said he had heard that Lord Brougham once remarked to an American lawyer: " If your law students produce such masterly treatises, your lawyers must be men of unusual learning." Mr. Laussat also edited Fonblanque's "Equity" (Philadelphia, 1831; Brookfield, 1835).
