  • About the Author

Modi A Textbook of Medical Jurisprudence and Toxicology, since its first edition in 1920, has reigned supreme in its field. It is a well established, specialized and highly recommended book on the subject of Medical Jurisprudence, a multi-disciplinary science. This book has been the key reference tool for medical and legal professionals working in these fields. It has also helped investigating agencies to stay focused on what data is essential and important to collect from scenes of crime. Retaining the flavour of Modi’s pristine brilliance, this twenty-fourth edition presents critical developments in case law as well as in the field of forensic sciences. This monumental work has two parts, Medical Jurisprudence and Toxicology, both of which have been edited by specialist contributors from diverse fields. This edition has been revised keeping in view the needs of the new forensic medicine syllabus, judicial observations and the concerns of the senior forensic medicine experts. The present edition will prove to be helpful both for learning about the complexities and the nuances of the subject and for applying them in practice.
