What we do

Potential clients

Hamburg diaLAWgue is aimed at those organisations operating internationally, such as the Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), the Council of Europe or the German Foundation for International Legal Cooperation (IRZ), and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), as well as German and foreign institutions and organisations engaged in legal dialogue (certain foreign courts, government departments, chambers of commerce, professional associations and law faculties, as well as German diplomatic and trade missions abroad).


Hamburg diaLAWgue offers you an overview of participating Hamburg institutions and organisations, as well as of the areas of law in which we provide experts from Hamburg. Many of these experts are also happy to support your projects on location abroad.

You will also find information about projects that have been successfully completed in the past.

Study Visits

Hamburg, as a city state, brings together a large number of legal institutions and organisations in a small area. Hamburg is therefore the ideal place for a visit by foreign lawyers, so they can get to know the legal system and its institutions, the legal profession, the notaries, the courts and the administration of justice, and so they can discuss matters with recognised experts in person.

We are happy to assist with the planning of your study visits to Hamburg.

Contact person

You will find useful contacts within all Hamburg judicial organisations. As a point of contact and as a coordinator Hamburg diaLAWgue offers you the services of Prof. Dr. Hinrich Julius, professor of legal dialogue with emerging economies at the University of Hamburg.

He can put you in contact with participating institutions, organisations and Hamburg legal experts. He can advise you as to the content of our programmes and help you make the right choice.
