Runnymede Society (USask Law)
Runnymede Society takes its name from a meadow by the Thames River where the Magna Carta, a document guaranteeing certain individual liberties against state power, was signed by King John in 1215. Today, the Magna Carta is considered to have laid the foundation for Constitutionalism, and serves as a symbol for liberty and the Rule of Law.
We are a national organization with affiliated chapters in various law schools and law firms. Our members include law students, legal scholars, practicing lawyers, judicial clerks, and more. Our guiding principles are (1) Constitutionalism: the Canadian Constitution is the supreme law, from which all government power must derive and be limited by; (2) Freedom: certain fundamental liberties are guaranteed by the Canadian Constitution, and are of paramount importance; (3) The Rule of Law: all people, institutions, and government bodies must be subject to the same laws. No one is above the law; (4) We seek to foster intellectual diversity and good faith dialogue within our law school.
