A traveling display exhibit of the Magna Carta will be stopping at the Judicial Center soon. For the month of October Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Chief Judge F. William Cullins will host the local display on the history of the 13th century document that set the United States on the course for democracy and had great influence on the development of laws. The exhibit is produced by the American Bar Association in honor of the Magna Carta’s 800th anniversary in 2015. “The 14th Judicial District, in cooperation with the attorney general’s office, are pleased to have the Magna Carta display for all to view,” Judge Cullins said. “All are invited to view this historically and educationally important document.” All local residents and students are invited and encouraged to visit the display and learn about the Magna Carta’s legacy. Visiting hours for the display are 8 a.m to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at 300 E. Main, Independence. School classes, youth groups, civic clubs and members of the public are cordially invited. Arrangements for presentations on civics and the rule of law are available for civic clubs, school groups and other interested organizations. The presentation will be made by the attorney gener- al and chief judge. Those interested in request- ing a presentation can contact Nancy Jones by e-mail at njones@14d.org “While the Magna Carta began as a series of grievances from barons in medieval England, the fundamental rights that were laid out in that document were later echoed in our own Declaration of Independence, and have been symbolic of liberty and democracy,” Schmidt said. “I encourage civic clubs, educators and other interested citizens to use this opportunity to discuss our civic history and engage in learning about the precious system of self-government we have inherited from those who came before.” More information about the display and the Magna Carta is available on the attorney general’s website at www.ag.ks.gov/magna-carta
