Program & Speaker:
The year 2017 will mark the 800th anniversary of the Charter of the Forest issued by King Henry III of England. Although less famous than the 1215 Great Charter of King John, the Charter of the Forest is the reason why the former acquired its name (Magna Carta, reissued in 1217, was called the “great” or “long” charter in comparison with the Forest Charter). The Charter of the Forest allowed Englishmen to use certain common lands wrongly claimed by King John and his predecessors. Although the rights granted were narrower than the various procedural rights in Magna Carta, they had relevance for all the king’s subjects, not just the barons and great lords. This CLE presentation will use these two charters as a jumping-off point for a discussion of what rights ought to be considered fundamental and the role of the legal profession in protecting those rights.
