12 Tables/Hammurabi Comparisons You have already written an essay outlining salient features of Hammurabi’s Code and assessed values inherent in ancient Indian political/social systems. In this assignment you will reexamine Hammurabi’s Code, comparing to the 12 Tables of Roman Law, and identify what values serve as the backbone of each. Do Hammurabi’s Code and the 12 Tables espouse similar values? If so, what are they? Why do you think these codes of law would share these values? What values are inherent in one that is not in the other? Why do you think this is so? Requirement: Your paper should be 2-3 pages in length, 12 point font, double-spaced, and include a bibliography (cite the two codes of law as well as any other material you use to respond to the question). Please place your name and class period in the upper right corner of the first page (single spaced) along a title (centered).
