This report deals mainly with the institutes of legal medicine in the universities of Europe. There are twenty-eight articles in all, twenty-three of which deal solely with the legal institutes of various European universities. The other five concern the medicolegal institute in Egypt; position of legal medicine in Canadian universities; proposed plans for the department of legal medicine at Havana, Cuba; the Massachusetts medicolegal system, with plans for a pathologic institute in Boston; and the responsibility of the chief medical examiner of New York in relation to medical progress and research. These are supplemented by building and floor plans of the various institutes and other illustrations showing their equipment. From this report one can obtain an excellent comparative idea of the various universities represented, and it should be of much value to officers of medical schools in which new departments of legal medicine are contemplated.
