The American Board of Legal Medicine was incorporated in 1951. Its membership is limited to doctors who also possess a degree in law or who have had at least five years' medicolegal experience. Since its founding, this organization has sponsored a number of meetings. This book represents a collection of papers presented at these meetings on a number of medicolegal subjects. The papers themselves may be said to represent the expression of opinions of the men who have taken the time and trouble to present a point of view. Individually, the papers are of uneven quality. Collectively, they are of interest as they reflect the character of the sponsoring organization.
