Poland and the Czech Republic – 2003

November 30, 2008

In Poland the group visited the Warsaw Bar Association. The Bar houses offices for lawyers rather than just being a professional group as in the U.S. The hosts talked about some of the pressures put upon the legal profession to speed up the processing of cases to comply with requests made before Poland’s integration into the Economic Union could be finalized. Included in the trip was a visit to the Monument to the Warsaw Ghetto Heroes.

On the way to Krakow, the group visited Auschwitz.  In Krakow the group went to court and was hosted by Judge Witold Korycinski, the Vice Chair of the Court, and, representing the Polish Bar, advocate Zbigniew Cichon.

In the Czech Republic, the group visited the Central European Advisory Group, a group of bright young lawyers and businesspeople, many of whom left the branches of large American firms, to provide soup-to-nuts legal and consulting help to foreign businesses planning to start operations in the Czech Republic.
