Professor Thomas M.J. Möllers gave a lecture on "Enforcement of Consumer Protection and Capital Markets Law - Current Developments in Germany and Europe" at the German-Turkish Symposium on 4 October 2019 at the Law Faculty of the University of Istanbul.

In addition to professors from the University of Augsburg, speakers from the host university also reported on current developments in Turkish tort law. After the lectures there was a lively discussion. In the conference room were about 120 participants, mainly consisting of students, assistants, lecturers, professors and lawyers from Istanbul.At the end of the symposium, both sides confirmed and emphasised that the symposium had certainly made a good contribution to the German-Turkish legal dialogue and friendship.


The conference took place in the conference hall of the historical faculty building, which was built at the beginning of the 19th century and used for a long time as an office building of the Ministry of Defense. The Faculty of Law of the University of Istanbul was the first law faculty in Turkey (founded in 1880). The University of Istanbul is considered an elite university and enjoys a good ranking. An Erasmus partnership between the University of Augsburg and the University of Istanbul has existed since 2003.
