ABSTRACT
The article presents an essay on foreign law sources in domestic constitutional interpretation based on a speech that the author delivered at the 25th Annual Federalist Society Student Symposium held at Columbia University Law School in February 2006. He argues that the use of non-binding foreign law in constitutional jurisprudence is not a form of judicial activism but a part of interpretive traditions of the U.S. Supreme Court. He also identifies differences between foreign and international law.
