This summer, the CEELI Institute and the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) will join together for a very special joint meeting in Prague, at the CEELI Institute’s Villa Grebovka, on June 27-29, 2015. The festivities will mark the 25th anniversary of the creation of original American Bar Association/Central and East European Law Initiative (ABA/CEELI) project in 1990–the forerunner for both of our organizations. The meeting also marks the 15th anniversary of the creation of the CEELI Institute.

We hope that everyone can join us for this special series of events in Prague, as we look back on a quarter century of Rule of Law efforts, and look forward to the challenges that remain. We are planning an exciting program.

The schedule is as follows (all events will be held at the Villa Gröbovka, in Prague):

June 27 (Saturday): ABA/CEELI Alumni arrive in Prague for a special CEELI Alumni Reunion Dinner at the Villa Gröbovka (Informal Reunion Barbeque on the Villa Terrace—everyone welcome!)

June 28 (Sunday): CEELI Institute Board Members and other Guests continue to arrive in Prague; the Afternoon will feature an Alumni Reunion Panel on the “ABA/CEELI Legacy” and the Evening will feature a Welcoming Reception at the Villa

June 29 (Monday) – Full Day Program of Speakers and Panels at the Institute, celebrating 25 years of work to advance the Rule of Law
