This year marks the 800th anniversary of the drafting of the Magna Carta, which paved the way towards parliamentary democracy in this country and abroad.
On May 7th, as the citizens of the United Kingdom exercise their democratic rights by electing their parliamentary representatives, Citizens UK and global law firm Linklaters LLP would like to invite you to join us to celebrate the enduring political relevance of the Magna Carta with a private lecture and reception at the British Library Conference Centre.
Igor Judge, Baron Judge PC QC, former judge and Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales (2008-2013), will address guests on the subject of 'Why the Magna Carta still matters’.
There will be an opportunity for questions and this will be followed by a presentation from Citizens UK on the implications of the the Magna Carta for our Manifesto proposal to end indefinite detention for immigration purposes.
There will be a drinks reception from 19:00-20:00.
We encourage you to visit the British Library's exhibition, "Magna Carta: Law, Liberty, Legacy" before the lecture, and will send further details when you book a place for the lecture.
