Last May, SJMC students traveled to London and Glasgow to participate in professor Jane Kirtley's "Freedom of the Press in the United Kingdom" global seminar. The students visited several media organizations, including BBC Scotland and The Guardian. The group also visited the Magna Carta memorial at Runnymede. Erected by the American Bar Association, the memorial is of a domed classical style, and contains a pillar of English granite with the inscription: "To commemorate Magna Carta, symbol of Freedom Under Law."
