Take part in free training courses!
The European Foundation of Human Rights cordially invites you to the training courses. Their primary purpose is to deepen your knowledge of conducting cases of violations of human rights in the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union from procedural and formal point of view. Trainings will help to deepen practical knowledge of the lodging of complaints to the European Court of Human Rights and of the jurisprudence in such important issues as freedom of speech or the return of nationalized property (including the case of collecting the already recovered forests) and many other important international laws. In addition, trainees will be able to present their cases and get advice from an expert.
It’s worth mentioning that the planned courses are a continuation of last year’s training cycles conducted by the Foundation. Those training courses attracted a lot of interest so there was a need to continue this initiative.
