Ronald Dworkin

·American legal philosopher and professor

·saw a strong connection between the law and morality or our values

·our morals, our values, our sense of justice form the foundation of our interpretations

·a community is governed by a shared vision of social justice, not by individual ideas of justice and morality


H.L.A. Hart

·a twentieth century British legal theorist and Oxford University professor

·is another significant contemporary legal thinker

·while laws are simply rules pronounced by the authorities, they have an “open texture” -- they have limitations

·law and justice for Hart are not absolutes, they could not be clearly defined; they are flexible and need to adapt to the particulars of each situation


I most relate to the legal philosopher Dworkin because he believes that a community is governed by a shared vision of social justice, not by individual ideas of justice and morality. As Canada is a democracy, we all have input in making laws. Not one person has say over a law. Which I believe is fair for society.
