In the framework of ongoing judicial training in Serbia, the Judicial Academy of Serbia and the non-governmental organisation The AIRE Centre in London, which is specialised in ECHR and EU law, are organising two events in Belgrade to co-incide with the European Day of Civil Justice on 25th of October. On Thursday 25th participants from the Serbian Supreme Cassation Court and Appellate Courts will be attending a seminar to discuss issues arising from the European Court of Human Rights's case law on Article 6 of the ECHR, in particular the importance of legal certainty and the problem of lengthy proceedings. On 26 and 27 October, senior judges and prosecutors who are part of the Judicial Academy's expert trainers group will continue to discuss these issues, as well as the right to protection of property - this group will be in charge of training other judges and prosecutors throughout Serbia on the European Convention on Human Rights.
