3. Work through the "Introductory Legal Philosophy Reading" <https://www.socialglobalstudies.com/legalphilosophyintroreading.pdf> and decide which one of the CORE 4 theories is best suited to judge Simon.  I recommend making summary notes on the CORE 4 legal theories (pp.1 to 3 and p. 13) … by this I mean, write down what you see as the 3 most important ideas at the core of each of the 4 legal theories. Some of those ideas might be about how theories are different or similar to each other. On p. 8 assign each statement to one of the 4 legal theories (i.e., which theory does each statement best describe). Finally, read the case brief R. v. Dudley & Stephens on pp. 14 and 15 (notice some of the similarities to Simon and Joe's case). What legal theories were used to decide the case at different levels of court? What theory do you see as the most appropriate to judge such a case? Was the final outcome just?
