Hamburg's First Law Slam: Battle for the Golden Nutshell

As part of this year‘s Night of Knowledge, the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law will hold the first-ever science slam exclusively dedicated to legal topics.

Hamburg‘s first Law Slam (JuraSlam) will see junior researchers of the Institute present their academic work in a unique manner: 10-minute mini-lectures offered in non-technical and entertaining terms. The participant who is most successful in this regard will be awarded the Golden Nutshell. And as is typical of Slam competitions, it is the audience that will decide whose project holds the greatest appeal.

Be surprised to learn of the allure of a contractual breach and the gripping nature of a ship’s forced auction! Learn why comparative research is such an urgent prerequisite for innovation in the field of biopharmaceuticals, and find out whether a German arbitral award can also make it past an Austrian 'doorman' and find enforcement.
