About
The Magna Carta, one of the founding documents of our constitutional system and of the modern concept of liberty, turns 800 this year. We have gathered an outstanding group of judges, attorneys, and scholars to commemorate the “Great Charter” with a diverse and exciting program.

Topics to be discussed include the Magna Carta and the American jury trial, the Magna Carta in popular culture, use of the Magna Carta in modern litigation, women and law in the age of the Magna Carta, and a look at 1215 and its aftermath in England. We’ll conclude the day with an open discussion and question session with our speakers.  View the full program, below.

Register today and bring your interests, questions, and “Happy 800th Birthday” cards (small joke - neither cards nor gifts expected) to our unique Magna Carta at 800 continuing legal education program on May 29, 2015.
