(Friederike Stumpe works as a Lawyer at Mannheimer Swartling in Frankfurt, Germany)

The Fourth Summer Academy of the Heidelberg Center for International Dispute Resolution took place from the 9th to the 14th of July 2007. As in past years, it was held in cooperation with the German Institution of Arbitration (DIS) and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). This Fourth Summer Academy was a further contribution to the success story of the Summer Academies held so far. The directors, Prof. Dr. Thomas Pfeiffer, Prof. Dr. Burkhard Hess and Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Herbert Kronke succeeded in putting together a programme of lectures giving the participants a profound insight into the practice of European and international procedural law, alternative dispute resolution, and arbitration law. The speakers addressed useful techniques and tactics in lectures and interactive workshops.

The group of participants consisted of lawyers, representatives of business and politics, post-graduate students, doctorate students and trainee lawyers from Germany, Greece, the Czech Republic, Chile, Finland, Italy, Portugal, Brazil and Pakistan.

European and international procedural law

After some initial words of greeting to the participants and an introduction, Professor Dr. Thomas Pfeiffer, designated Vice-Rector for Teaching and Communications of the University of Heidelberg, gave a broad overview of transnational debt recovery in the internal European market. He addressed the most important acts of European civil procedure paying special attention to the Brussels-I Regulation [Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 of 22 December 2000 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters] which as of the 1st of July 2007 will be extended to Denmark. He discussed the persisting problem of so-called legal torpedoes, which results from the equal treatment of actions for performance and actions for a negative declaratory judgment. Furthermore, he addressed choice of forum agreements, matters of provisional measures and notification of legal acts as well as the unlawfulness of anti suit injunctions under European law. Finally, Professor Pfeiffer dwelt on the topic of the European Enforcement Order for uncontested claims [Regulation (EC) No 805/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 April 2004 creating a European Enforcement Order for uncontested claims].
