“Law Made in Germany” Symposium, Frankfurt, September 4, 2014

Law Made in Germany is an initiative to promote the use of German law in international commercial contracts. This initiative is largely a reaction to a similar initiative of the Law Society in England & Wales.

The initiative is organizing a symposium in Frankfurt on September 4, 2014. One of the topics will be the use of English in German courts, a topic which we have covered here in the past – and that is adding an element which so far has been somewhat lacking: Law Made in Germany has so been stressing the advantages of the German substantive law, but had not, in my view, given sufficient weight to the issue of dispute resolution. I believe that to most parties, governing law and dispute resolution, i.e. the enforcement of the chosen law, are part of a package. Here is a link to the Programme (in German).
