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 spring, two highlights of our event year are already on the agenda: On March 8, on the occasion of International Women's Day, we will be screening "On the Basis of Sex", the film adaptation of the life's work of the US Supreme Court judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg, at the Filmpalast in Cologne, where we will discuss gender domains and gender equality in a high-level panel.

On April 5, the Transatlantic Legal Conference (#TLC19) will be held in Frankfurt am Main for the first time as the follow-up event to our traditional Working Group Day (Fachgruppentag). We hope for a numerous participation!

Be part of a network of over 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.
