Topics of the German Presidency
Six seminars will be held during the German Presidency, four of which in Germany. These seminars promote legal dialogue between the member courts and in relation to the Court of Justice of the European Union. They thus contribute significantly to the European legal community. The seminars are prepared by means of comparative legal questionnaires and are evaluated in a final report.
