    Abstract

    There has always been a relationship between medicine and law. Statutes governing the liability of the physician were included in the ancient code of Hammurabi and in Roman Law. The law makers always attached a real importance to medicine in connection with basic rules pertaining to paternity, life and death, and medical evidence. Minimal and maximal duration of pregnancy was fixed in Roman Law.
