The training course is intended for anyone interested in the topic of human rights. We would especially like to invite those who work within the legal field on a daily basis, such as lawyers, attorneys, prosecutors, judges, legal firm employees and students. Every participant will receive a certificate of attendance.

EFHR has organized a number of training courses over the years which have been hosted by highly-respected specialists in the field of international law. Our courses have proved hugely popular. Find information about previous training sessions here.
