Legal Advice

Providing legal services is not the mission or function of the Institute. We appreciate your understanding that we are not in a position to offer legal advice to private individuals.

 

When within the Institute's academic mission, the Institute provides courts and agencies with legal information on foreign law and conflicts of law. In respect of foundational comparative law research, the Institute also prepares expert opinion analyses on behalf of federal ministries and other institutions. In extremely limited circumstances legal information may be provided to notaries and attorneys. Requests in relation to commercial disputes or the preparation of a legal action in a foreign court will not be entertained.

 

The Institute is under no obligation to provide legal information and reserves the right in every case to only undertake assignments commensurate with its capabilities and academic interests.

 

All legal information is provided on a contract fee basis.

Inquiries should be sent in writing to the Institute. The Institute will not provide legal information over the telephone or by e-mail.
