The Magna Carta Legacy website celebrates important legal ideas found in the world's most famous legal document, the Magna Carta! The website explains key ideas from the Magna Carta and contains international case studies which trace how ideas from the Magna Carta are recognised in legal systems today.
The 800th Anniversary of the grant of the Magna Carta on 15 June 2015 is the ideal moment to look at the way in which the law and government work in the 21st Century. The purpose of this website is to educate about the law and to explain how ideas central to the Magna Carta are protected or enshrined in law.
Case studies on Manga Carta Legacy will include:
Content and website development: Nick Clark and Nick Lindeback
Illustrations: Alan Chen
Research Assistants: Will Shrubb and Anusha Thomas
This website is possible due to the support of the Magna Carta 800 Committee!
