Linklaters LLP

This year marks the 800th anniversary of the drafting of the Magna Carta, which paved the way towards parliamentary democracy in this country and abroad.

On May 7th, as the citizens of the United Kingdom exercise their democratic rights by electing their parliamentary representatives, Citizens UK and global law firm Linklaters LLP would like to invite you to join us to celebrate the enduring political relevance of the Magna Carta with a private lecture and reception at the British Library Conference Centre.

Igor Judge, Baron Judge PC QC, former judge and Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales (2008-2013), will address guests on the subject of 'Why the Magna Carta still matters’.

There will be an opportunity for questions and this will be followed by a presentation from Citizens UK on the implications of the the Magna Carta for our Manifesto proposal to end indefinite detention for immigration purposes.

There will be a drinks reception from 19:00-20:00.

We encourage you to visit the British Library's exhibition, "Magna Carta: Law, Liberty, Legacy" before the lecture, and will send further details when you book a place for the lecture.

Citizens UK

Citizens UK is a powerful alliance of local Community Organising groups in London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Milton Keynes, Nottingham and Leeds. We bring together churches, mosques and synagogues; schools, colleges and universities; unions, think-tanks and housing associations; GP surgeries, charities and migrant groups to work together for the common good.

We develop the capacity of our members to build power locally so they can hold politicians and other decision makers to account. We work on a range of issues, from small local campaigns to large national campaigns.

Community Organising is about building power and participating in democracy: being realistic in what we demand and winning key victories to improve the lives of communities across the country.
