Lawyers need better training in the European Convention and Strasbourg case-law

The European Convention on Human Rights and the case-law of the Strasbourg Court should be an integral part of the basic and further training of law professionals throughout the Council of Europe area, according to PACE’s Legal Affairs Committee.

Approving a report by Jean-Pierre Michel (France SOC), the committee urged greater funding for the HELP programme – the European Programme for Human Rights Education for Law Professionals – which carries out this work, including by providing materials to “train the trainers”.
