The subject has been headed into different sections which cover Forensic Medicine, Toxicology, Medico Legal Acts. The topics have been explained in a simple language which will be easy for the students to understand. Most of the topics are condensed and explained in a form of flow chart and the differentiation is made easy by explaining it through tubular form, which will be easy and helpful for the students in understanding the topics.
