The many faces of the reasonable person

Abstract:
Reviews the various legal contexts in which the reasonable person test may be invoked. Argues that the test supplies extra-legal standards from which courts must attempt to construct legal standards, and discusses why this is deemed a useful adjudicative exercise. Suggests that the reasonable person can be thought of as a justified person, and considers the relevance of this insight for feminist critiques of the test.
