'Magna Carta’s American Adventure' by Professor A.E. Dick Howard

Much of Magna Carta's iconic significance lies in its international impact. Nowhere is it more venerated than in the United States.  There it was used to justify the move toward independence, and, from the early days of the Republic, it has helped shape American constitutionalism.  Even today, Magna Carta is seen as a cornerstone of what makes the American nation what it is.

A.E. Dick Howard is an internationally renowned constitutional lawyer and currently the White Burkett Miller Professor of Law and Public Affairs at the University of Virginia. He is the author of a number of publications, including the The Road from Runnymede: Magna Carta and Constitutionalism in America, Democracy's Dawn, and Constitution-making in Eastern Europe.

His talk will provide a captivating and highly informed view of Magna Carta's significance in America.
