PRESENTATION COPY FROM SANDRA DAY O'CONNOR TO JUSTICE GINSBURG.

O'CONNOR, SANDRA DAY, foreword. International Law: A Handbook for Judges. Washington, D.C.: American Society of International Law, 2003. Paperback. Studies in Transnational Legal Policy, no 35.

PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED ON A POST-IT TO RUTH [BADER GINSBURG] FROM SANDRA [DAY O'CONNOR]: "Ruth- I thought you might like to have one of these little books. Hot off the press. Sandra." The ASIL's International Law: A Handbook for Judges was composed by David Bederman, with assistance from Christopher Borgen and David Martin, in order to create a framework for understanding the relationship between international law and U.S. law, and the ways in which international law is applied in the United States. By 2006 it had been distributed to 2000 U.S. judges nationwide. According to O'Connor's foreword, the campaign to increase judicial knowledge is a needed response to globalization: "understanding international law is no longer just a legal specialty; it is becoming a duty common to lawyers and judges alike."
