The Code

I think the code is fair because if you break one of the laws, you'll get a punishment. Ex. If a surgeon has failed on someone and the person dies, the surgeon will get a punishment. Or if the man of a married couple is caught with another woman, he will get punished. Hammurabi made these rules to protect people in the city, now that is just.
