Dr. Olaf Christiansen

Welcome to the website of the German-American Lawyers Association (DAJV). We are pleased about your interest!

All DAJV members share an affinity in the USA. We want to promote mutual understanding between Europeans and Americans in order to be able to discuss transatlantic legal issues openly and critically.

Our association is open to lawyers of all professions and ages. We are pleased about the great commitment of our younger members in particular. We are proud of our open culture, everyone is welcome.

We are present at numerous regional, national and international events in Germany and the USA. This autumn we are looking forward to two more high-class events in our agenda: From 12 to 14 September we will be holding our annual conference in Berlin. During the opening ceremony we want to celebrate together with our American friends in the US Embassy at Pariser Platz.

On October 28th our LL.M. Day 2019 will take place at Wallraf Richartz-Museum, Cologne. During the two parts Seminar & Fair, participants will be able to learn from first-hand experiences and receive information on how to finance their studies before they will meet representatives of law schools for individual talks. If you are considering studying in the USA, you simply cannot ignore this must-attend event.

Of course, we are also looking forward to welcoming you to our other events! Please always keep an eye on our event schedule.

Be part of a network of 2,500 lawyers from Europe and the USA. Everyone is invited to get involved. It's worth it!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office.

With kind regards
Dr. Olaf Christiansen, LL.M.
