European Human Rights Law. Course syllabus
Human rights law has become an indispensable part of legal education. European Convention on Human Rights forms part of Ukraine’s legal system and pervades its many areas. It is therefore essential for any lawyer practicing in Ukraine, be it in private or public sector, to be familiar with the European system of human rights protection. The European Human Rights Law course focuses largely, but not exclusively, on the European Convention on Human Rights and the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights. It offers an opportunity to study the basic rights and freedoms guaranteed in the European Convention on Human Rights and the mechanism of their protection. This course is an opportunity not only to gain theoretical knowledge about the European system of human rights protection, but also to learn how to prepare an application to the European Court of Human Rights and to analyse domestic legislation and practices in light of the European human rights law standards. In this course, seminars are organised in the form of discussions, moot court, practical assignments, during which topical issues related to the application of the European Convention on Human Rights law in Ukraine are addressed. The course is taught in English. This presents a great opportunity for students to improve their speaking and legal writing skills. The course is accompanied by the European Human Rights Law Lecture Series organised to allow students to meet and network with practitioners in human rights law.
