800-årsjubilerande Magna Carta figurerar till sommaren i ett rättegångsspel. Tre ledande common law-domare kommer att leda en förhandling där frågan är ”whether the barons and bishops were acting lawfully when they refused to surrender London to King John as they had agreed. The barons and bishops, it is widely accepted, forced the King to agree to a charter which addressed a number of fiscal concerns close to their hearts, as well as clauses asserting the rule of law and the right to a trial by jury for certain people.”
- Lord Neuberger, President of the UK Supreme Court
- Dame Sian Elias, Chief Justice of New Zealand
- Hon. Stephen Breyer, Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court.
