and trends most important to their cross-border practices.
For decades, the United States' dynamic legal system has fascinated German observers, so much so that a small and often overlooked number of whom continue to influence its evolution. Likewise, legal developments within Germany have long held the attention of a select group of U.S. jurists and academics keen on learning from one of the most efficient judiciaries in the world.
If you share our desire to foster this spirit underlying our shared transatlantic community, we would be honored to welcome you to the DAJV.
