Let´s Go West // LL.M. made in the USA
For more than 40 years, the German-American Lawyers Association (DAJV) has been successfully conducting seminars and fairs to prepare European lawyers for additional education in the United States. Over the years, our programs have produced thousands of graduates.
To cater to a changing market environment and evolving needs, we have completely revamped the format for 2019. The seminar and fair are now condensed into a single day, and will take place in a single venue. While the seminar part will now 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.
