In the summer of 2002, the German Institution of Arbitration (DIS) initiated a German initiative of young arbitrators. The initiative operates under the name „DIS40“ on a national and regional level. Membership is free of charge. Membership may obtained by completing the form below. Membership terminates automatically upon completion of the 40th year of age.
The DIS40 is a forum for the exchange of experiences among young arbitrators, and its activities focus on subjects that are of interest to young lawyers. These subjects are discussed in regular meetings with practitioners in arbitration in an informal circle.
The coordinators of DIS40 are:
Rouven Bodenheimer, Köln
Olga Hamama, Frankfurt
Maxi Scherer, London
Jan Erik Spangenberg, Hamburg
Regional Coordinators of DIS40:
DIS40 Berlin: Nils Schmidt-Ahrendts

Für die DIS40 Stuttgart: Roland Kläger
