Although legal professions around the world are operating in a period of rapid economic, social and technological change, legal education in the field of Attorney Regulations is close to being carelessly neglected in Germany. However, the German Federal Bar (BRAK), German Bar Association (DAV), Association of German Faculties of Law3 and the Soldan Foundation established an educational program called Hans Soldan Moot in 2013, administered by the Institute for Procedural Law and Attorney Regulations, Hanover.
The Soldan Moot serves as an example for new trends in legal ethics education at German Law Schools. The Soldan Moot is one nearly unique of a kind, only comparable to the National Professional Responsibility Moot Court Competition and the Legal Ethics and Professionalism Moot Court Competition. The paper shall describe the idea behind the Soldan Moot, the benefits of participating in such a competition for universities, students and practitioners and shall also outline the educational benefit of holding such a competition, using the Willem C. Vis Moot competition as a successful example.
