On this day...

by Joe Kaczrowski | Jun 15, 2015

Perhaps you've seen something about one of the many events relating to the Magna Carta this year. (This Friday, the New Lawyers Section, along with several other organizations, is hosting an all-day summit at the Bakken Museum, for example.) On this day in 1215, King John put his seal on the Great Charter.

This afternoon, the Federalist Society is hosting a talk at Kieran's Pub in Minneapolis (From Magna Carta to the Minnesota Constitution). As noted above, the ABA Magna Carta Regional Summit is this Friday starting at 8:30 AM at the Bakken Museum in Minneapolis. The agenda for the Summit can be found here.

What is the Magna Carta and why should you care? The History Channel has a decent summary. You could also take a look at the ABA's site dedicated to the "Great Charter of Liberty," which includes links to the social media discussion.

June 15, 1215, a significant date to be sure, but did anything else interesting happen on this date? Delaware was founded in 1776. Clarity was given to U.S.-Canadian border in the Oregon Territory in 1846, establishing the 49th parallel as the border, despite earlier efforts to seize territory up to the 54th. Two months after entering World War I, Congress passed the Espionage Act on June 15, 1917.

June 15 is also Global Wind Day, a day to celebrate and promote wind power. Other significance to June 15? There are less than 200 days until New Year's Eve.
