The team at Cuff and Gough were delighted to attend a glamorous event held by the Law Society this month, which celebrated 800 years since the Magna Carta was signed at Runnymede.
Magna Carta is the foundation stone supporting the freedoms enjoyed today by hundreds of millions of people in more than 100 countries.
Magna Carta enshrined the Rule of Law in English society. It limited the power of authoritarian rule. It paved the way for trial by jury, modified through the ages as the franchise was extended. It proclaimed certain religious liberties, “the English Church shall be free”. It defined limits on taxation; every American remembers that “no taxation without representation” was the cry of the American colonists petitioning the King for their rights as free men.
Take a look at the brilliant photos which show the team dressed up to the nines!
