The DRJV has established several regional discussion groups. These regional groups meet several times a year, usually in the evening. The meetings are often divided into two parts: a technical part, where a speaker gives a short presentation on a topic of current interest, followed by a discussion. This is followed by a joint dinner to continue the discussions and to consolidate a regional network of people interested in Russian law or German-Russian legal relations. Our regional discussion groups are also open to non-members, especially students and trainee lawyers. New interested parties are always welcome!
