VSB group gets firsthand look at upheaval in Greece

Lawyers on a Virginia State Bar excursion to Athens are watching history in the making, with a possible change in that country’s government coming today.

Besides earning CLE credits and visiting antiquities, the Virginia barristers reportedly have set up a panel discussion with Greek parliament members and lawyers to discuss the rule of law.

“Amazing opportunity” is how one participant described the planned session today.

Reports from Greece indicate there is pressure for establishing a temporary coalition government to hold elections, as the current prime minister struggles to retain power.
