28.12.2017 On December 15-16, 2017 a seminar for lawyers and attorneys on How to Defend Rights in Strasbourg? was held in Novosibirsk.

On December 15-16, 2017 the Institute for Law and Public Policy in partnership with the Fund "Tak-Tak-Tak" conducted a seminar for lawyers and attorneys on How to Defend Rights in Strasbourg? in Novosibirsk.  

The seminar was held within the Project Enhancing Civic Engagement in Strategic Constitutional Litigation in Russia, which is implemented by the Institute for Law and Public Policy with the support of the European Union. The Fund of Assistance to Mass Communications Development and Legal Education “Tak-Tak-Tak”  is a regional partner of the Institute in this Project.

As trainers at the seminar, Kirill Koroteev, legal director of the Human Rights Center "Memorial", responsible for conducting cases at the European Court of Human Rights, and Natalia Secretareva, lawyer of the Institute for Law and Public Policy, delivered speeches.

  

The seminar was attended by 20 attorneys and 11 practicing lawyers, including representatives of the Office of the Ombudsman for Businessmen in the Novosibirsk Region and the Office of the Human Rights Ombudsman in the Tomsk Region.

Over the seminar the participants examined which rights are protected by the European Convention on Human Rights and how the European Court of Human Rights interprets the content of these rights, how to file complaints with the ECHR and how to convince the Court of the applicant's rightness.

It is known that the Russians often appeal to the ECHR but not all complaints are accepted by the Court for consideration. Therefore, a part of the seminar hosted by Natalia Secretareva and Kirill Koroteev was dedicated to such an important aspect of complaints, as its admissibility.

The practical part of the seminar was of great interest to the participants. The trainers suggested that the seminar participants identify violations of the Convention on the basis of the case study and formulate the requirements in the ECHR, based on the specific circumstances of the case.

The trainers also paid attention to the rules for filing complaints with the ECHR and emphasized that when appealing to the European Court of Human Rights, not only the circumstances of the case are important, but also how these circumstances are set out.
