Federal Courts should deny certiorari to law suits challenging the counterplan . 1. States are more effective at incorporating international law than the federal government Powell, Law @ Columbia ‘1 (Catherine Powell, Associate Clinical Professor of Law, Columbia Law School “SOCIAL MOVEMENTS AND LAW REFORM: DIALOGIC FEDERALISM: CONSTITUTIONAL POSSIBILITIES FOR INCORPORATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS LAW IN THE UNITED STATES” November 2001 150 U. Pa. L. Rev. 245 Lexis) While the U.S. Constitution assigns the power to make and adopt treaties to the federal government, several state and local governments have "adopted" human rights treaties and other international norms, often in response to constituent pressures that are more effectively mobilized at the subnational level . n2 For example, in the absence of federal ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All [*246] Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW ), n3 San Francisco has incorporated "principles of CEDAW" into binding local law . n4 In the death penalty context, where the federal government has not yet opted to ratify the Second Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (Second Optional Protocol to the ICCPR ), n5 aimed at the abolition of the death penalty, a handful of cities have urged their states, and in some cases the federal government, to support a moratorium , relying on the United Nations Commission on Human Rights' call for such a moratorium. n6 2.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
