The German Bar Association (Deutscher Anwaltverein – DAV) comprises 252 local bar associations and more than 61,000 individual lawyers. It represents the interests of the German legal profession at the national, European and international level. I am honoured to have been appointed to its Civil Litigation Committee (Zivilverfahrensausschuss).
Those of you who read German may already be aware of zpoblog.de, Benedikt Windau’s blog on civil procedure. Last year, Benedikt kindly invited me to become a regular contributor to zpoblog.de, with a focus on arbitration and international civil procedure. It’s really been fun working with Benedikt over the last year, from discussing the delights of blogging to sharing ideas and co-authoring for FAZ. Going forward, I will be publishing English-language versions or summaries of zpoblog.de posts with an arbitration or international angle over here as well.
