Vattel’s work is based on civil law, not English common law as was (almost) universally used in the colonies.

Occam would agree that a legal term when used by attorneys educated in a particular system of law is most likely to carry the definition of that system of law.

Since you are so adamant that Vattel’s “Law of Nations” was not used by the Framers, could you post a list of what references were used in the development of the US Constitution, with some links to support your opinion, please? Thank you.
