“Why shouldn’t we look to the wisdom of a judge from abroad with at least as much ease as we would read a law review article from a professor?”
For Slaw readers, the most interesting line is:
The Canadian Supreme Court, she said, is “probably cited more widely abroad than the U.S. Supreme Court.” There is one reason for that, she said: “You will not be listened to if you don’t listen to others.”
This sounds right for a number of reasons, but is there any statistical evidence that it’s true? Any readers seen any such data?
