Legal medicine was not treated as being just a theoretical pursuit. It was eventually brought into the courtroom. For example, in 1667 Schwammerdamm, in Germany, claimed that the lungs of a newborn baby would float in water if the baby had actually breathed. The first book on legal medicine written in English was authored by Samuel Farr in 1788 and was entitled Elements of Medical Jurisprudence, a succinct and compendious description of findings in the human body that were required for judgment by coroners and courts of law in cases of divorce, rape, and murder, among others. In 1819, Dr. Cooper, a legal officer of distinction and president of the College of South Carolina, published Tracts on Medical Jurisprudence.

The Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine publishes topical articles on aspects of forensic and legal medicine.
