Next, it was off to Belgrade, Serbia, for the Annual General Meeting of the European Young Bar Association (EYBA). The Serbian young lawyers were wonderful hosts, and it was incredible to hear about their struggle to form a new government. The ABA Rule of Law Initiative and program in Europe and Eurasia (known as CEELI) is providing important support to train judges and government officials in Serbia. It was a privilege to be the only American young lawyer in attendance at their Annual Meeting, and I greatly appreciate the warm welcome from all of EYBA’s officers ( www.eyba.org
). It was particularly amazing to hear the perspectives of young lawyers from around the world, including the requirements necessary to become a foreign lawyer and their different events and programs.
