A study of the modern Greek legal system offers a number of particularly interesting opportunities.

First, it requires a comparison to be made of the common law tradition and the Greek version of the civil law tradition.

Second, it invites a consideration of the legacy of ancient Greek legal systems (in particular the Athenian legal system in the 5th and 4th centuries B.C.E.).

Third, it requires a consideration of the later historical influences, Roman, Byzantine and German in the formation of modern Greek law and practice

Fourth, it requires a review of how modern Greek law and procedure has had to adapt to the requirements of the membership of Greece in the European Union.

Finally, the Conference invites a review of the Legal System of Greece in relation to the historical background to, and contemporary position of, Church and State in Greece and cultural monorities in Greece.

The object of the conference is to provide introductory insight into the operation of the modern Greek legal system and its historical and cultural underpinnings comparative to the common law tradition and, through that insight, to facilitate a deeper access to modern Greece and an introductory appreciation of the implications for its legal system of the membership of Greece in the European Union.

It is the intention of AICLS that the Conference be of interest to people from a variety of educational disciplines and backgrounds.
