ABSTRACT
The article deals with the practice of using foreign and international sources of law in domestic constitutional interpretation in the U.S. A number of legal scholars argue whether the use of the sources is proper in interpreting the Constitution. It also notes that the Supreme Court has referred to such laws in some of its most controversial rulings. Justice Sandra Day O'Connor requested for increased reliance on international law in the new period of global interdependence.
