The   Official  Journal   of the  British  Academy of Forensic Sciences


January 1972


THIS January Number of MEDICINE, SCIENCE,
AND  THE  LAW  represents what might be
called a new era.  It is the first number
published by  John  Wright  &   Sons  of
Bristol, who I am sure will carry on the
tradition so ably started by  their pre-
decessors. This is no  criticism of past
publications but an indication that it is
proposed by the editors that there shall be a
new policy from now onwards. This policy
will include amongst other things a series of
regular features together with a correspon-
dence column, which is one of the features of
many  journals, from the point of view of
giving the readers an opportunity of voicing
their own opinions whether in agreement
with or in contradiction to articles which are
published in the journal.


  The  Council of the British Academy of
Forensic Sciences thought that with  the
appearance of the long awaited Brodrick Com-
mittee Report readers ofthe journal MEDICINE,
SCIENCE, AND  THE  LAW  would appreciate
reviews of the report from both the legal and
the medical points of view.* Dr. John Havard
reviews the medical aspects of the report
while Mr. E. A. Williams reviews the legal
side. The  views expressed, therefore, are
those of the individuals concerned and not
necessarily those of the Council of  the
Academy nor those of the Editorial
Committee.
