America’s founding documents can trace their roots to the Magna Carta, which laid the groundwork for democracy as we know it today.  As the infographic below suggests, the Magna Carta established several key principles:

  • No taxation without representation
  • Right to a fair trial
  • No one is above the law – not even a king

It is fitting then that professional law associations celebrate the Magna Carta on Law Day, which is celebrated on May 1st.

As a company LexisNexis places heavy emphasis on the Rule of Law as a unifying effort to “strengthen civil society and the rule of law across the globe.” In many ways, it’s the continuous effort to advance those principles established in the Magna Carta so many centuries ago.
