The DRJV has awarded the German-Russian Legal Award annually since 2011. Co-organisers are the Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations, the German-Russian Chamber of Foreign Trade, the Centre for Eastern European Law Graz, the Ostinstitut Wismar and the Wiesbaden Institute for Law and Economics. Grateful thanks are due to the sponsors and the jury, without whose support the award would not have been possible.
The award is grated for outstanding comparative law work between Russia and the German-speaking countries. In particular, young lawyers are encouraged to an academic approach to this topic. The award is offered in four categories; one student and one academic paper are honoured, each of them in German and in Russian. more
