Magna Carta replica to be unveiled
Two leading lawyers will discuss the key role of Magna Carta in the rule of law at a talk at the Bermuda National Gallery tomorrow.
The talk, by Ben Adamson and Saul Dismont, will follow the unveiling of a limited edition reproduction of the Magna Carta which was given to the Bermuda National Gallery by an anonymous donor to mark 400 years since the first sitting of the legislature in Bermuda.
The document, widely considered to be the cornerstone of human rights, will be used by BNG as an educational resource.
Magna Carta, meaning ‘The Great Charter’, was originally issued by King John of England in 1215, and established for the first time the principle that everybody, including the king, was subject to the law and entitled to a trial. It remains a cornerstone of the British constitution and was the foundation for the US Bill of Rights.
Mr Adamson, a director in the Litigation department at Conyers Dill & Pearman, and Saul Dismont, an associate in the litigation and advice team at Marshall Diel & Myers Limited will host the talk on the importance of the Magna Carta and its role in the rule of law.
Due to social distancing regulations, capacity is limited and all attendees must register in advance. Tickets are free and open to the public.
