Abstract:     
This article responds to and comments on an Application of International Human Rights Law in State Courts: A View from California, an article by Paul L. Hoffman appearing in the Symposium on International Human Rights Law in State Courts. It agrees that the most promising use of international human rights law is as an aid in interpreting federal and state civil liberties and civil rights laws. The article primarily outlines ways in which and that certain provisions treaties or of customary law may be invoked as arguably binding on state and federal courts.
