Essential element of our porfolio attracting young lawyers for decades

For 45 years the Deutsch-Amerikanische Juristen-Vereinigung e.V. (DAJV)/German American Lawyers Association has been a leader in transatlantic legal education and exchange. Most of our 2,500 members have graduated with degrees from US law schools and many attended one of our events before applying for their American legal education.

An essential element of our offer for young lawyers is the DAJV LL.M. Day. It traditionally consists of two parts: a seminar and a fair. While the seminar part will focus on critical topics not readily found online, the fair will continue to provide opportunities for meaningful personal interactions. This differentiates our offering from the more fleeting atmosphere of many academic fairs.

This year, in response to the Covid19 pandemic, we are venturing new grounds: Our traditional DAJV LLM event goes virtual and will be extended to three days, whereby we will maintain the successful concept of a combined seminar and fair. What remains unchanged, however, is our passion for connecting as many interested participants as possible with the best US law schools.

Our event is open to students, trainees and doctoral candidates interested in studying law in the U.S. Our LL.M. Day provides a unique opportunity to meet some of the best U.S. law schools in a small circle, make personal contacts and ask questions. At the LL.M. Day the law school representatives and our speakers, graduates of U.S. law programs provide helpful information and tips on options, organizing and financing of LL.M. studies.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the DAJV LL.M. Days on November 5-7, 2020.
