As newly reinstated director of the Hamburg Theater, in 1786, Schröder introduced significant reforms in the organization and made clear to actors their rights and duties, showing how firmly he believed the importance of "morals", a trait that typically accompanies the development of the new bourgeois actor.

A new version of Gesetze is published by Meyer in his biography of Schröder: Friedrich Ludwig Schröder. Beitrag zur Kunde des Menschen und des Künstlers. In zwei Theilen, edited by F. L. W. Meyer, Hamburg, Hoffmann und Campe, 1819, vol. 2, pp. 232-248; Hamburg, Campe, 1823.
