Malcolm Speaks at ABA Program on Magna Carta

On April 30, 2015, Professor Joyce Lee Malcolm joined a distinguished panel including Justice Stephen G. Breyer to discuss The Great Charter: What Makes Magna Carta Mythic? The American Bar Association, in cooperation with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, sponsored the event as part of the annual Leon Jaworski Public Program. The Jaworski program was one of the ABA’s principal national events for this year’s 57th annual commemoration of Law Day and was held at the Wilson Center in Washington, DC. The purpose of the program was to focus on the "symbolic attributes of the Great Charter to examine what makes Magna Carta mythic," and to "help us better understand an eight-century long legal-political tradition, its endurance, and continuing significance for the twenty-first century."

A webcast of the program is available on the Wilson Center's website.
