2015 marks the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta – and NCSC is recognizing this milestone in a variety of engaging ways. NCSC is featuring “mini” Cartas –videos of 50 seconds or less that teach about Magna Carta’s relevance today. NCSC unveiled three mini Cartas in the month of June.

Our “Magna” Carta features a six-minute video featuring state court chief justices, state court administrations, the NCSC president, and the Library of Congress’ law librarian.

Please watch, learn, and enjoy.

Justice Case Files 5: The Case of Cyberbullying


NCSC has released its fifth graphic novel in the Justice Case Files series. The latest book, The Case of the Cyberbully, tells the story of Amber, who is bullied at school and online by classmate Madison. The bullying escalates to the point the case winds up in juvenile court. The story is timely—and historical. Its release in 2015 celebrates the  800th anniversary of Magna Carta, which established the rule of law in 1215, as a result of King John of England’s consistent bullying—or intimidating—of his barons and citizens. Through Justice Case Files #5: The Case of the Cyberbully, students learn what to do if they are being bullied, how the courts protect them, and how Magna Carta has influenced numerous documents throughout the years (including the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence) drafted to protect the rights of the people and to limit the powers of others.
