Welcome to InBrief
Welcome to the summer issue of Gullands Solicitors’ firm wide magazine.
I am particularly delighted to introduce you to this special Magna Carta edition, which marks the 800th anniversary of the Great Charter. As the front cover portrays, the famous Magna Carta was an agreement between King John of England and the rebel barons signed at Runnymede on 15 June 1215.
Magna Carta has provided the backbone for our justice system here in Britain and has also influenced many documents around the world such as the American Declaration of Independence. Earlier this year I was privileged to be invited to give a speech on the Charter and its impact on legal ethics at the Non-Resident Indians Business Forum in Delhi, which you can find more about on page 10.
As celebratory events take place up and down the country, I am thrilled to announce that Gullands is hosting its very own commemorative Magna Carta event at Allington Castle on 15 May. The Allington Debate will bring together leaders from the legal profession and a selection of Kent’s leaders to debate and discuss the relevance of Magna Carta in today’s modern society. You can read more about the history of Magna Carta and the Allington Debate speakers on pages 6 and 7.
I hope you enjoy and find this issue to be both useful with numerous legal updates and an insight into what Gullands partners and staff have been up to over the past few months.
