BOSTON (AP) — The American Bar Association will debut a special traveling exhibit to commemorate the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta at the group's annual meeting expo in Boston.

"Magna Carta: Enduring Legacy 1215-2015" will feature banners that reflect images of Magna Carta and precious manuscripts, books and other documents from the rare book collections of the Library of Congress.

The exhibit will be available for viewing Aug. 8-10 at the Hynes Convention Center.

The importance of Magna Carta to American laws and freedoms will be highlighted at the ABA's annual meeting as John G. Roberts Jr., chief justice of the United States, speaks to the ABA's House of Delegates on Aug. 11.

After Boston, the exhibit will travel to courthouses, law schools, universities and public libraries around the country.
