Although according to §43a BRAO (Federal Code of the Legal Profession) a German Lawyer is under an obligation to update his professional expertise, no formalised system of CLE credit is yet in place.
However, in order to maintain the title of "Fachanwalt" (specialist lawyer), German lawyers must take part in advanced training for at least 10 hours per year (§15 Fachanwaltsordnung).
There are around 20 areas of practice (criminal, family, property, inheritance, administrative, labour, etc...)
Since 2010, ECCLE has operated educational programs designed to attract lawyers, trainees, accountants & judges from all around Europe and elsewhere. Programs typically combine legal training in major areas of the law & business (International contracts, International Extradition and the EAW, EU Law & Human Rights, Finance & Accounting) with the advancement of "Legal & Business English" skills.
