Berlin Semester Opening Social

Last Thursday we were finally able to meet up in Berlin for an in-person social again and start of the summer semester with a blast! We had a great time catching up and finding out how everyone spent their semester holidays in the – admittedly quite spooky – chemistry-themed bar. We can’t wait to see you again at our next social!

Lecture series: „Insights into the Work of an Anglo-German Insurance Lawyer“

On 23rd March we hosted another event as part of our lecture series “Insights into the practice of German and English Legal professionals”. Mirjam Schorr, who is a partner at Kennedys in London, gave us fascinating insights into the work of a dually qualified private international lawyer.

It was amazing to learn more about the different stages of complex cross-border disputes. Particularly interesting were the aspects which are unique to these disputes such as determining which courts have jurisdiction and which laws apply.

After the presentation it was great to have several engaging audience questions regarding issues such as differences in the way English and German lawyers approach legal problems, the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test and the moral component of representing big companies in product liability cases.

Thank you to Mirjam Schorr for delivering such an insightful presentation and then taking the time to answer all of our questions!

Franco-German Friendship Social

On the 22.01 the AGLS hosted a joint social with the AJPK – the society of the English and French Law degree at King’s College London – in honour of the Franco-German Friendship Day.

It was great to have so many people from different year groups and the two different degrees join us at the Lord Nelson for an incredible evening. Celebrating the Franco-German Friendship Day together was meaningful and provided a great opportunity to make new friends from the French law degree and also allowed for many of us to catch up with old friends after the seasonal holidays. We cannot wait and are excited to repeat this lovely event soon again!
