Unit 4 Assignment: Legal Philosopher Chart
For this assignment, review the theories of the legal philosophers we have studied so far in the course, choose any five of these philosophers and use the Unit 4 Assignment Template to complete your Legal Philosopher Chart. As indicated in the template, for each of the five philosophers you have chosen, name the philosopher, describe the philosopher’s theory in detail, critique the theory, and identity the philosopher as either a legal positivist or a natural law theorist. To critique each theory, you should evaluate the validity of the theory and identify any potentially valid criticisms of the theory.
Be sure to summarize each theory in your own words and cite to the relevant page(s) in the Murphy text as your authority. In addition, cite to at least two additional resources as authority.
Submit your Unit 4 Template to the Dropbox by the end of Unit 4 in the basket titled Unit 4 Assignment.
