Hammurabi’s Code of Law Assignments Working in groups of 3-4 you are to first familiarize yourselves with the Code of Hammurabi. You must then analyze a newspaper selection or a modern day crime, lawsuit or trail that one of your group members has chosen. Remember the story must cover a crime, lawsuit, or trial. You must then compare how the outcome would be different than modern law if Hammurabi’s Code were applied.
In your spiral you must translate at least 5 of Hammurabi’s laws and assign modern day punishments. You must then tell me how the punishments are similar and different than those of today? Would you have rather been a noble or a commoner during the time of Hammurabi? Why?
