American Lawyer Becoming Licensed in Germany


jctex
Hello, I have a JD and am licensed to practice in Texas. In addition, I have three years experience as a prosecutor and some civil litigation. Does anyone have any information on obtaining a law license in Germany for an American lawyer? Would I have to start over if I moved? Does an American license lend any weight with the German bar? Any help is appreciated.

As far as I know you can be admitted to the German bar if you are a Attorney at law in the US:
