Whose Law is it, Anyway?

The ever brilliant Mattias Caro from Icarus Fallen passing along this interesting piece written by Harvard Law Professor Mary Ann Glendon in the Wall Street Journal about the problems with citing foreign law in Supreme Court judicial opinions.

Her point about the non-existence of a real ``International Community`` is huge; citing Sharia Law, or Communist Chinese Law is as valid as citing E.U. or U.N. rulings.

This is a must-read.
