An effective awareness of the legal profession’s interests at the European level is indispensable, considering the constantly increasing importance of European legislation. Therefore the voice of the German Bar Association (DAV) is heard clearly and effectively in Brussels. Networked with numerous other national Attorney Representatives throughout the EU, the DAV operates through its office in the "European Capital" with a successful policy of interest. In addition, the DAV collaborates in close confidence with the CCBE and other associations.
