Magna Carta Celebration Continues

You've probably heard by now that this year marks the 800th anniversary of one of Anglo-American law's most treasured documents--the Magna Carta.  A special exhibit at the Library of Congress, featured in a previous post, proudly displayed one of the original copies.  Now, to accompany its ongoing celebratory exhibit, the British Library has created an outstanding digital presentation of original items on display, articles, videos, and more to enjoy online.  And closer to home, the latest issue of the New Yorker features an eye-opening article about the Magna Carta in its own times and in American legal tradition, "The Rule of History: Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights, and the Hold of Time," by historian staff writer Jill Lepore.  Anyone interested in law, history, or our heritage of legal rights should check these out.

ABA Journals on Hein Online

The American Bar Association Journals is a sub collection of the Law Journal Library (Hein Online) which contains only titles published by the American Bar Association.  You can search an individual title or across the collection.  Each article is a separate PDF so this is a good source for journal source gathering.
