On 17 December, 20 assistants to judges received their certificates of completion of the HELP (Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals) course on Reasoning of Criminal Judgments.
The participants completed a two-month intensive online course on the Reasoning of Criminal Judgments, which was a joint effort of the European Union, the Council of Europe and the High School of Justice. Participants were trained on key concepts of substantiation of court decisions based on the requirements of the European Convention of Human Rights. This free online course has been designed to address the needs of judges, who, in their National Courts, are required to reference the judgments and case law of the European Court of Human Rights.
The trainings were organised under the Partnership for Good Governance programme within the project “Strengthening the Application of the European Convention on Human Rights in Georgia”, co-funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe, and implemented by the Council of Europe.
