Trainings on human rights for judges and students of the High School of Justice
Two training seminars for judges of first instance courts dealing with criminal cases and students of the High School of Justice (HSoJ) will take place on 16-17 June at the HSoJ. Judges will be trained on the case law of the European Court of Human Rights on Articles 2 (Right to life), 3 (Prohibition of torture) and 6 (Right to a fair trial) of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). The seminar will specifically focus on the requirement for well-reasoned judgments in criminal cases. In a separate training seminar, students of the HSoJ will be briefed on the case law on Articles 5 (Right to liberty and security) and 6 (Right to a fair trial) of the ECHR. Both training seminars will combine substantive teaching with case studies, with a view to putting the acquired knowledge into practice. The seminars are being organised in the framework of the Denmark’s Georgia Programme 2010-2013 “Promotion of Judicial Reform, Human and Minority Rights”.
