The Judicial Academy, in cooperation with the Council of Europe, is sending an invitation for participation in online courses developed by the Council of Europe Programme on Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals (HELP).
At a time when the movement of people is limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, judges, prosecutors and legal professionals have an ideal opportunity to get acquainted with online HELP courses and to find out more about specific topics, such as:
- (Updated) Introduction into the European Convention on Human Rights and the European Court of Human Rights, with a new module on execution judgments of the European Court of Human Rights (there are older versions adjusted to the domestic legislation of some countries)
- Alternative measures to detention
- Alternatives to immigration detention (to be released soon)
- Asylum and European Convention on Human Rights
- Bioethics – Key human rights principles in biomedicine
- Child-friendly justice
- Fight against human trafficking
- CPT (European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment) standards
- Data protection and privacy rights
- Fight against racism, xenophobia and homophobia/transphobia
- Human rights in sport
- Procedural safeguards in criminal proceedings and victims’ rights
- Prohibition of torture
- Property rights
- Reasoning of criminal judgements
- Refugee and migrant children
- Rights of persons with disabilities
- Violence against women and domestic violence
Some of the courses are available in Serbian and will probably include complementary materials pertaining to Serbian laws, case law and context.
Upon completion, the students can print out a "Statement of Accomplishment" certificate. If somebody has not received his/her own certificate yet, they can attend the course of their interest and get the "Statement of Accomplishment" certificate (available only in English).
The Glossary is aimed at ensuring that legal professionals from the Council of Europe member states use the correct terms when they present arguments that are based on the Convention in national proceedings and that they understand them correctly when they read English-language judgments.
So far, more than 900 users from Serbia have visited the HELP platforms for e-learning.
