This June, the American Bar Association will be celebrating the 800th Anniversary of the sealing of Magna Carta at Runnymede. Jeana Goosmann, CEO and Managing Partner of the Goosmann Law Firm, is traveling to London and then to Runnymede for the commemoration on June 15th, 2015. Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh, will be attending the event. U.S. President Barrack Obama might also be attending. The ABA has been committed throughout its existence to commemorating Magna Carta due to the significant role that the treaty has played in shaping the American legal system.

A number of events are scheduled for four days, including receptions at the Guildhall and the Royal Court of Justice, and a garden party at Winfield House, the residence of the U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom.
