General – Conceptual orientation
Since 2009 the IRZ’s bilateral commitment has taken place exclusively within the framework of the series of lectures on German and European law at the Universities of Poznan and Warsaw. It appears expedient to continue these activities, and not only with regard to the awareness created for German law among young lawyers. The law schools also make a major contribution towards establishing lasting contacts with young German-speaking Polish lawyers.
In particular the series of lectures in Warsaw, as an integrative element of the curriculum of the Faculty of Administration and Law of the University of Warsaw, continues to enjoy substantial repute and recognition from the professional associations of Polish lawyers and from German industry, which assign considerable significance to the project for the young academics of young Polish lawyers, because of the high level of expertise maintained in the lectures and of the strict achievement tests to which participants must submit.
Now in its 15th year and attended by 35 individuals as regular attendees, it was formally opened by Prof. em. Dieter Grimm, LL.M. (Harvard). On the occasion of the 80th birthday of Professor Marcus Lutter, whose initiative had set the project rolling, a one-day symposium on “Current trends in Polish and German company and group law” took place this year for the first time in addition to the actual cycle of lectures. The event was attended by renowned Polish and German academics. There are plans to integrate such an annual symposium into the curriculum to add greater depth on current issues.
