Hammurabi's code of laws was one of the ancient worlds first attempts to establish a common set of laws, but more importantly, it was the first law code to be displayed in public for all to see. Hammurabi had his code published on six foot tall stele explaining why he had the power to rule and what the 282 laws were. By displaying the code to the people, Hammurabi gave them a sense of justice and an understanding of what actions were appropriate.
