ABSTRACT
The article challenges arguments advanced by critics of international law in the U.S. It states that such a law does not usually have the clarity and specificity of domestic law. It also notes that critics demand allegiance to international law without mental reservation or purpose of evasion. Professor Jeremy Waldron recognizes that habeas corpus laws are the best example of his concept of legal archetypes.
