Dear colleagues and friends,
Dear runners,

This year the Berlin Marathon will take place on September 30, 2012. It is one of the largest sports events in Germany with more than a million spectators lining the course.

Fortunately, there are also many lawyers among the participants of the Berlin Marathon. Many German colleagues try to prove that lawyers are fit and that we are not only busy and ambitious while working in our offices. Many international lawyers participate as well.

This is why the German Bar Association (Deutscher Anwaltverein) is providing a special assessment for lawyers, which in 2012 is open to lawyers from all over the world.

If you would like to participate in this assessment please note the following:

Please send your start number and your confirmation of registration with the subject ”Sonderwertung für Rechtsanwälte” to:

Deutsche Anwaltakademie – jurEvent
Tobias Hopf
Littenstraße 11
10179 Berlin

Tel.: +49 30 726153 180
Fax: +49 30 726153 188
e-mail: hopf@anwaltakademie.de

There will be a short presentation ceremony in the premises of the German Bar Association on September 1 Oktober 2012, 10 a.m.

Just in case you enjoy in-line skating: A marathon competition for in-line skaters will take place on Saturday 29 September 2012, 5.30 p.m. Provided that there are enough lawyers joining, a special assessment would be available as well.

Important note: The Berlin Marathon was sold out at the end of February, 2012. However, some of the official tour operators still have entries for sale. You can find them online: http://www.bmw-berlin-marathon.com/en/service/tour-operators.html.

It would be an honor for us to welcome you and other members of your bar association or law society in Berlin.

Chief Executive, German Bar Association
