Abstract

This review article offers a discussion of Judicial Cosmopolitanism: The Foreign Law in Contemporary Constitutional Systems and explores the contribution the book makes to an ever growing corner of comparative constitutional law. It starts by placing scholarship focusing on judicial use of foreign law within the broader field, marking out Ferrari’s contribution as comprehensive. It then explains, in detail, some of the trends that can be identified from Ferrari’s text, embarking on a discussion of the varying ways in which jurisdictions across the world make use of foreign law.
