Flashmob 70 years of German Constitution (Grundgesetz) - MELCHERS shows its colours together with many Heidelberg lawyers

 

 

On May 23, 2019, the Heidelberg Bar Association had invited to an extraordinary event on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the German Constitution (Grundgesetz): Almost 50 lawyers met at the Bismarckplatz in Heidelberg. At 1 p.m. sharp, the participants distributed throughout the square put on their robes and distributed miniature editions of the German Constitution to passers-by. They wanted to draw attention to the fact that the basic rights are not only important for the work of lawyers, but they have effects also on the everyday life in nearly all areas of life. Many people all over the world envy Germany for this Constitution and the rule of law based on it. This was to be communicated to the public - with success: on the lively Bismarckplatz many conversations with interested passers-by took place. One school class, who had heard about the campaign, had even travelled from Dielheim with their social studies teacher to discuss with the lawyers.
Also MELCHERS was represented by some lawyers and showed its flag for our constitutional state.
