The traveling exhibit “Magna Carta: Enduring Legacy 1215-2015” will be at the Richard J. Hughes Justice Complex in Trenton from July 13-24. On July 15, the Federalist Society is hosting a reception formally opening the exhibition, and Chief Justice Stuart Rabner will be the guest of honor and featured speaker.
The exhibit was developed by the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Standing Committee on the Law Library of Congress and by the Library of Congress and its Law Library. It focuses on Lincoln Cathedral’s 1215 manuscript of Magna Carta, which stands as one of only four surviving original exemplifications from that year.
The reception, which is being held from 4-6 PM on July 15 at the Richard J. Hughes Justice Complex, is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is requested.
