Training for judges' legal assistants on freedom of thought, conscience and religion and prohibition of discrimination.
A training seminar for a new group of legal assistants of judges of first instance courts will take place on 13-14 April at the High School of Justice. Judges’ legal assistants will be trained on the case law of the European Court of Human Rights on Articles 9 (Freedom of thought, conscience and religion) and 14 (Prohibition of discrimination) of the European Convention on Human Rights. The use of practical case studies (in combination with legal theory) will allow legal assistants to put their acquired knowledge on these issues into practice to the benefit of judges. This Council of Europe activity is organised within the framework of Denmark’s Georgia Programme 2010-2013 “Promotion of Judicial Reform, Human and Minority Rights”.
