Bilateral Cooperation with France, Poland and Hungary

The Federal Administrative Court has particularly close ties to the supreme administrative courts in France, Poland and Hungary. Its partner courts are the French Conseil d’État, the Supreme Administrative Court of Poland and the Curia in Hungary. A bilateral working meeting takes place every two years to discuss current topics of administrative law and administrative procedural law. Members of the various courts regularly visit partner courts as visiting judges. The courts continuously exchange materials and publications. Due to the contact and travel restrictions relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, the working meetings could not take place in Leipzig in 2020 and 2021.
