Law students in Montenegro participated in the workshop on the phenomenon of domestic violence

The law students involved in the human rights legal clinic in Montenegro, participated in the workshop on “The phenomenon of domestic violence” organised in co-operation with the SoS Line Podgorica on 18 February 2021.

Working with the colleagues who have extensive experience in supporting victims of violence enabled students to gain first-hand experience on how to approach victims and provide comprehensive legal and phycological support to them. The workshop was organised for a small group of students, in a team-oriented environment conducive to active participations and interactions, allowing to learn from co-workers.

The students learned about the main techniques the offenders use to avoid criminal liability, including legal, psychological and social tools to manipulate the victim.

The co-operation with SOS Line Podgorica will be continued in the context of the human rights legal clinic, where students will have a chance to work directly on “real cases” under the supervision and tutorship of legal professionals and experienced NGO activists.

The action "Improved procedural safeguards in judicial proceedings in Montenegro" is a part of the joint European Union and Council of Europe programme “Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Turkey 2019-2022”.
