20 assistants to judges received their certificates of completion of the HELP (Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals) course on Reasoning of Criminal Judgments on 17 December.
The participants completed a two-month intensive online course on Reasoning of Criminal Judgments which was a joint effort of the European Union, the Council of Europe and the High School of Justice. Participants were trained on key concepts of substantiation of court decisions based on the requirements of the European Convention of Human Rights. This free on-line course has been designed to address the needs of judges, who, in their National Courts, are required to reference the judgments and case-law of the European Court of Human Rights.
The trainings were organised in the framework of EU/CoE joint project “Strengthening the Application of the European Convention on Human Rights in Georgia”, within the EU-CoE Partnership for Good Governance.
