Hello Intelligent Thinker.
Harold Koh has been nominated by President Obama to serve as the next Legal Adviser to the Department of State. However, Harold Koh is an outspoken believer in "transnationalism", the idea that AMERICAN courts should apply and honor the laws of other nations.
Koh favors foreign law over American law.
The State Department Legal Adviser is the voice of the United States around the world on international legal issues. Among other responsibilities, the Legal Adviser:
(1) is involved in the negotiation, drafting, and interpretation of treaties, U.N. Security Council resolutions, and General Assembly resolutions
(2) represents the United States in international negotiations, at international organizations, and before the International Court of Justice
(3) interprets and seeks to develop international law.
