Dr. Olaf Christiansen

Welcome on our Website. We are happy about your interest in Deutsch-Amerikanische Juristenvereinigung (DAJV) – the German-American Lawyers‘ Association.

In 2015 DAJV is turning 40 years old – time to think about yesterday and prepare for tomorrow. On June 20 we celebrated the anniversary adequately in Cologne, had a great party at the Rhine. On the same day we elected a new board and I was made President of the association. I am grateful about the election and honored to fill that position. I very much look forward to working on behalf of DAJV with a strong team of colleagues and friends.

All DAJV-members share a common interest in the USA. Our goal is to promote the mutual understanding between Europeans and Americans. We want to facilitate open, profound and critical discussions about transatlantic legal issues.

Our association is open to lawyers from all professions and all ages. In particular, we are very happy about the great contributions of our young members. We are proud of our open culture; everybody is welcome and can get in contact with interesting people within DAJV.

We are holding events all over the place. We are present locally in several cities with regional events and hold larger central events, like our Fachgruppentag (Working Group Day) in Frankfurt/Main and our Annual Conferences in Germany and in the US.

You are invited to be part of a network of 2600 European and American lawyers. It will be worth it!

In case of questions, please contact our office in Bonn.

We are looking forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events!

With kind regards

Dr. Olaf Christiansen, LL.M.
