The modern legal interpretation of Magna Carta

The modern legal interpretation of Magna Carta

Only three clauses of the statute remain law in England and Wales today.

  • Clause 1 states that 'the Church of England shall be free.'
  • Clause 9 promises that 'the City of London shall have all the old liberties and customs' it used to have.
  • Clause 29 is the best-known. 'No freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or disseised of his freehold, or liberties, or free customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any other wise destroyed; nor will we not pass upon him, nor condemn him, but by lawful judgment of his peers, or by the law of the land.'
