From a Distance: Reflections on German Law and Legal Culture — A Conversation with Russell Miller

With his ‘Introduction to German Law and Legal Culture’ (Cambridge University Press, June 2024), the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law and Max Planck Law alumnus Russell Miller offers students, comparative law scholars, and practitioners an insightful and innovative survey of the German legal system and the varied and colourful fabric of German legal culture. Miller’s engaging and pluralistic portrayal of one of the world’s most influential and frequently modelled legal systems also prompts reflection on the state of German law in transatlantic and global contexts, in an ever more fragmented and polarized world. A roundtable conversation with Michaela Hailbronner (University of Münster), András Jakab (Paris Lodron University Salzburg), Ralf Michaels (Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law, Hamburg), Russell Miller (Washington and Lee University), Vera Weissflog (Federal Ministry of Justice), Philipp Dann (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin),  hosted by Alexandra Kemmerer. The event will be livestreamed via Zoom. A link will be forwarded after registration.
