Check out New York Law Journal’s Law Day Issue — 800 Years of Magna Carta: Symbol of Freedom Under Law!
In this year’s issue of the New York Law Journal’s Law Day, AABANY President Will Wang, AABANY Past President and current NYSBA President Glenn Lau-Kee, and AABANY Member Hon. Randall Eng were all published among other important voices discussing 800 Years of Magna Carta: Symbol of Freedom Under Law.
President Will Wang in his article, “Fundamental Liberties Must be Protected,” related the legacy of the Magna Carta to the sordid history of discrimination, but left on the hopeful note of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Jr.’s words: “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”
