Kelemenis & Co. advises the University of Teeside on the regulation of higher education in Greece

Kelemenis & Co. has been instructed to advise the University of Teesside on the regulatory regime of higher education in Greece and particularly the operation of private universities in the country. It has also been instructed to undertake a legal due diligence of the local entity with which the university cooperates in delivering its degree programmes. The delivery of higher education in Greece by private universities remains a troubled area due to the existing constitutional barriers and heated political disagreements. By and large, local institutions offering higher education programmes as well as foreign universities offering degree programmes in Greece either on their own or through local partners operate in a regulatory vacuum.
