Naturalism&conventionalism in philosophy of LAW?

This answer was rated:

I am quite confused on a topic we discussed in our law philosophy class today. I was absent for a week due to sickness and the professor wouldn't take the time to explain, I am hoping someone here can help me out. here is a imaginary case he has told us to think about in class using Dworkin's philosophical views on naturalism and conventionalism: You are the city court judge, and two men are brought before you for violating an ordinance in your city which says "it shall be a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of fifty dollars, to sleep in any railway station." Men #1 had been heard snoring by the arresting officer while sitting upright on a bench in the railway station's waiting room at 3 am. When awakened, he produced a ticket for a train that ha been delayed. Men #2 had stretched out on a bench in the waiting room, pulled a blanket around himself, and closed his eyes, but was arrested before he had a chance to fall asleep. Although homeless, he had a driver's license with a local address on it. Can someone help explain me how would they you decide the case by using judicial philosophical theories of Dworkin's conventionalism and naturalism?

Seems like no professionals are able to help me out over here. Can I cancel my question?



Thought I would check to see if you could use some materials I have on this issue that provide information about Dworkin's views. Let me know.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I do need information on Dworkin's ideas about conventionalism. I already figured out the naturalism party by rereading through his articles. Yet I still lack information and understanding regarding conventionalism .

If you have info on that please do let me know.
