21.12.2018 A seminar on Appeal to the Russian Constitutional Court “Complaint to the Russian Constitutional Court: Opportunities, Risks, Prospects” was held on November, 30 and December, 1 2018 in Voronezh.

A seminar on Appeal to the Russian Constitutional Court “Complaint to the Russian Constitutional Court: Opportunities, Risks, Prospects” was held on November, 30 and December, 1 2018 in Voronezh.

The seminar was attended by 21 representatives of the legal community of Voronezh and the Voronezh region, as well as Belgorod, Lipetsk and Tambov (among them are 5 lawyers, 11 representatives of NGOs, 1 lawyer in private practice and 1 representative of the academic community). Along with 2 lawyers of the Public Human Rights Reception Office of the Human Rights House, the seminar was also attended by its interns, law students from Voronezh State University and Voronezh State Agrarian University.

   

In an interactive mode, theoretical and practical classes were conducted by the Institute Senior Lawyer Olga Podoplelova and the  employee of human rights organizations “Soldiers' Mothers of St. Petersburg” and the Moscow Helsinki Group Alexander Peredruk.

   

During the workshop, the participants received answers to the following questions:
● In what cases can a constitutional justice mechanism be effective in protecting the rights of citizens and their associations?
● What are the criteria for admissibility of a complaint, and how to determine the prospects for applying to the Constitutional Court in a particular case?
● What is the procedure for considering a complaint in the Constitutional Court?
● What are the specifics of certain types of constitutional complaints (challenging the ambiguity of the rule of law; challenging the rule in its law-enforcement context, etc.)?
● What are the means and methods of evidence in constitutional litigation, and how to argue a violation of constitutional rights?
● How are the decisions of the Constitutional Court being implemented and how can its legal positions be used to protect the rights of citizens?
During the classes, students had the opportunity not only to learn about the specifics of appealing to the Russian Constitutional Court and the main features of conducting business in the Constitutional Court, but also were able to ask questions and get advice on the preparation of complaints. Of particular interest was the discussion of specific cases, both from the experience of trainers and from the practice of students.

At the end of the seminar, 18 participants received certificates of participation.


The two-day training was organized by the House of Human Rights - Voronezh in the framework of the partnership project of the Institute for Law and Public Policy "Enhancing Civic Engagement in Strategic Constitutional Litigation in Russia".
