The American Bar Association Magna Carta Video Competition invites student teams to create a video of not more than 15 minutes celebrating the 800th anniversary of the sealing of Magna Carta in June of 1215. Considered the foundation of such Anglo-American 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. Participants should use their videos to answer the title question: “Magna Carta: What’s So Great about the ‘Great Charter’?”
