19.04.2017 The seminar How to Defend the Rights in Strasburg? was held in Moscow

On April 16-17, 2017 the Institute for Law and Public Policy held in Moscow the seminar for attorneys and practicing lawyers on the protection of rights at the European Court of Human Rights How to Defend Rights in Strasbourg? From a Formulation of Violations up to a Filling an Application Form.

The seminar was attended by 28 specialists from Moscow, Novosibirsk, Perm, Khabarovsk, Kazan, Murmansk, Nizhnevartovsk, Orenburg, Ufa, Krasnoyarsk. The majority of listeners were attorneys (22). The representatives of academic community (2), practicing lawyers (2) and associate attorneys/lawyers (2) also took part in the seminar.

The curriculum of the seminar was built taking into account the latest trends in judicial practice, detailed instructions for completing a new complaint form, as well as the wishes of our listeners of previous seminars on applying to the European Court of Human Rights.

The seminar was conducted by leading lawyers who have extensive experience working with the European Court of Human Rights: Maxim Timofeev, Ph.D., associate professor of the European Humanities University (Vilnius), and Maria Voskobitova, associate professor of Procedural Law Department of the All-Russian Academy of Foreign Trade.


Over the seminar the participants received the answers to the following questions:

- What are the criteria for the admissibility of the complaint and the specifics of its application by the European Court?
- How to conduct a case at a national court, so as not to lose the chances of its consideration by the European Court?
- What typical mistakes of the applicants are faced by the Secretariat of the European Court and how can they be prevented?
- How to argue the complaint (to formulate what the violation was, to work out the applicant's position, to pick up its legal justification, to formulate the requirement for the European Court)?
- How to file a complaint with the European Court under the new rules so that it can be examined by the European Court on its merits?
- What is the specificity of the case in the European Court?
