Magna Carta and Wales

Magna Carta and Wales

To mark the 700 years’ anniversary of the signing of Magna Carta, in December 2015 Welsh think tank Gorwel invited the former Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge, to speak in Cardiff Bay about Magna Carta and Wales. He spoke about its importance to the legal system of both England and Wales, focusing on Magna Carta’s often overlooked Welsh dimension.

To mark this important centenary and to make Lord Judge’s talk available to a wider audience the Wales Branch of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (of which Paul Newman is Chairman) commissioned a professional recording of the lecture. Lord Judge’s scholarly and informative lecture is now available to view via this YouTube link.
