The Magna Carta at 800

Noon | Choctaw Building

The Clinton Foundation, in partnership with the Clinton School of Public Service and Pulaski County Bar Association, will host a discussion with Mr. Lewis Neilson, Chancellor of the National Society Magna Charta Dames and Barons, to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta and to celebrate the history and legacy that this remarkable document leaves behind.

Signed in 1215 by King John of England, the Magna Carta has persisted as one of the most influential charters in history. Its principles of individual liberty, right to trial by jury, and legal supremacy have informed a wide variety of documents, from the United States Constitution to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Mr. Neilson will discuss the importance of the Magna Carta as well as the institutions that have preserved its principles.
