Prof. Klaus Vogel (1930-2007) was one of the greatest academics in the area of international tax law and instrumental in developing our LL.M. Program. As a tribute to him we have established the "Klaus Vogel Lecture" in 2007. The lecture takes place every year with the support of PwC Germany. The next one is scheduled on October 13, 2023.
