Coffee Shop Talk--�Magna Carta: What�s So Great About the Great �Great Charter�?�--Thursday, Apr. 2

Join Mike Pace and Tim Isaacs of the Center for Teaching the Rule of Law on Thursday, April 2, from 8-9 pm at Mill Mountain Coffee in Salem for a talk about this 800-year-old document. Considered the foundation of such Anglo-America concepts as the rule of law, due process, trial by peers, and constitutionalism, Magna Carta�s origins and legacy have influenced the growth of representative constitutional democracy not only in England and America, but the world over. But for all of its positive international influence, it is still a document born of civil war and nurtured by political conflict that has left a modern legacy filled with tension. So, in spite of this tension, what continues to make Magna Carta so �great�? All talks are free and open to the public.
