Procedure and Jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights
|Event Date/Time: May 31, 2010||End Date/Time: Jun 01, 2010|
With the growing numbers of applications lodged before the Court, the Court is becoming ever stricter concerning the fulfilment of the admissibility criteria. It is therefore indispensable for a defence lawyer to respect them.
In the framework of this seminar, the different elements of the procedure will be explained by a practitioner who has represented applicants before the ECtHR.
The following questions will be addressed:
- What national remedies must be sought before submitting an application to the Court in Strasbourg?
- What documents have to be submitted?
- What is the objective of the written and the oral parts of the proceedings?
- How are judgments enforced?
A lawyer of the Registry will respond to frequently asked questions.
A government agent will complement the perspective from the point of view of the respondent government.
Complementing the presentations on the procedure a judge of the Court will share some reflections on trends in the current jurisprudence of the Court.
A key element of the seminar is a visit to a hearing of a case before the Court.
E-learning: Participants without any prior knowledge on the procedure before the Court will have the possibility to prepare themselves using an e-learning module.
