In fall of 2012, the German Federal Bar and the American Bar Association agreed to jointly sponsor the North American showing of the exhibit, Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany under the Third Reich.


The German Federal Bar, known as the Bundesrechtsanwaltskammer, is the national bar of the Republic of Germany and based in Berlin. Membership is approximately 166,000 lawyers and is required of all licensed lawyers in Germany. The American Bar Association is a voluntary organization of more than 400,000 members and based in Chicago. There are two identical exhibits now traveling throughout the United States and other parts of North America. Since the agreement was developed between the two bar associations, the exhibit has appeared in more than three dozen cities in the United States.
