Virtual Seminar & Fair | October 21-23, 2021

Minister Isabel Pfeiffer-Poensgen

Dear participants of the DAJV LL.M.-Days 2021,

Studying abroad is an incomparable and exciting time in which you can not only develop your professional skills, but also gain valuable personal experience. By participating in a Master of Laws program in the USA, you will gain insight into a foreign legal system and an interesting country. Staying and exchanging ideas on site also promotes intercultural communication and an understanding of other ways of life. Graduates of a study abroad regularly become bridge-builders between their home country and the second international homeland they became familiar with during their studies. Use today’s event to find out more about the master’s programs in the USA and exchange ideas with representatives from universities and the transatlantic network of the German-American Lawyers Association (DAJV). I wish all of you – students, graduates and universities from the United States – an informative and inspiring event.

Isabel Pfeiffer-Poensgen
Minister for Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia
