IRZ is currently holding talks with various project partners with the objective of offering web-based events. The first formats have already been made available online.

One of these was the course on German legal technology at the Law Faculty in Belgrade on 30 March 2020. This course has been offered in the standard format for more than 15 years and has always been well-attended. Dr. Stefan Pürner, the responsible IRZ Head of Section, was also able to welcome around twenty participants to the first online version of the event. From Bonn, he answered questions on German civil procedure law and the associated terminology. One of the main subjects covered during the discussions was the institution of the Rechtspfleger (senior judicial officer) in Germany, and Dr. Pürner was able to refer to the dual language edition of the German Act on Senior Judicial Officers published by the IRZ.

Alumnus Peter Brudar is clear proof of the fact that regular attendance of this legal terminology course pays off. As a scholarship student sponsored by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, he graduated from his Master’s course in German law at the Law Faculty of the University of Bonn on 31 March 2020 by passing his oral examination.

The Master’s course on European legal harmonisation at the Law Faculty in Belgrade is also currently running as an online seminar. The IRZ has been organising a study trip to Strasbourg and Karlsruhe as part of this course for years.

Also, over the coming week, a regular online workshop is due to start, in which German-speaking IRZ alumni from various countries in the Western Balkans will be able to discuss the subject “Corona and the law”. This workshop will also be used to prepare the content for the annual conference for IRZ alumni from the Western Balkans, which is due to take place during the second half of the year.
