EHRAC Legal Skills Development Programme 2014

Published: 1 Feb 2014

In February 2014 we held an intensive three-day legal skills development programme for litigating lawyers, focusing on the implementation of European Court judgments. The event was held at the Court itself in Strasbourg and included meetings with Court registry lawyers, officials from the Department for Execution of Judgments and state representatives who are involved in the Committee of Ministers’ implementation process.  Participants also had the chance to observe the Court in action by attending a Grand Chamber hearing.

Once again we would like to thank the MacArthur Foundation for enabling us to carry out such events which are vital to the development of human rights lawyers in Russia and across the former Soviet Union.

A full report on the event, including feedback from our participants, can be found here.
