Operation Macedonia began in the Spring of 1997, with a trip by then Villanova Law Professor Henry H. Perritt, Jr. to Skopje, Macedonia to provide encouragement and technical support for development of Macedonia Legal Resource Center, and for the Macedonian ministries then considering a policy for Internet service providers.

The project continued after Mr. Perritt became dean at Chicago-Kent, with Chicago-Kent students providing further technical assistance and establishing a "mirror site" to the Macedonia site, which facilitates access to Macedonian law.

The Macedonia Project ended in 2000.
