Bar Associations in Greece on Monday called their members to participate in protest actions on Jan. 19, 20 and 21 against the government-sponsored liberalisation of their profession by abstaining from their duties, except from the Athens Bar Association, which will decide on its stance in a meeting on Jan. 19.

Bar Associations in Greece on Monday called their members to participate in protest actions on Jan. 19, 20 and 21 against the government-sponsored liberalisation of their profession by abstaining from their duties, except from the Athens Bar Association, which will decide on its stance in a meeting on Jan. 19.

The Bar Associations presidents’ plenum decided to proceed with mobilisations after meeting at the justice ministry in the presence of minister Haris Kastanidis to discuss the draft law for the opening of their profession.

The lawyers' representatives objected to several draft law provisions including the level of the legal fees and the lifting of geographic restrictions in law practices.
