Cooperation with International Organisations
The Centre Européen de Coopération Juridique (CECJ) organises conferences on various topics in international law at the locations of the relevant international organisations.
The Programme “Successful Application to the ECtHR: From Theory to Practice” in cooperation with the Council of Europe provided training opportunities to more than 2,500 lawyers from the countries on top in terms of the number of complaints filed before the ECtHR since 2011.
International conferences in Geneva, The Hague, and Lausanne involved representatives of the UN, ICC, WTO, WADA and CAS to highlight critical aspects of international criminal law and international sports law.
Legal workshops in Los Angeles, Milan, Munich delivered by international practitioners with first-hand experience in industries such as entertainment industry, fashion, copyright and patent law.
Masterclasses in London, Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Paris, Beijing, Milan, and Stockholm at the world’s leading international arbitral institutions.
The CECJ’s Programme in collaboration with the Council of Europe since 2010
The CECJ’s Programme “Successful Application to the ECtHR: From Theory to Practice” is unique in terms of our excellent collaboration with the Council of Europe as well as full assistance from bar associations in many countries. More than 2,500 lawyers have completed their training sessions. The project has received a number of important national awards.
Public International Law since 2013
Our Public International Law Programme provides a platform for dialogue between representatives of international organisations and practising lawyers from different countries seeking to protect the rights and interests of their clients around the world. These thematic events were successfully launched in the Hague. The International Criminal Court (ICC) provided our participants with a rare opportunity to visit the court hearing of an African dictator’s case.
International Sports Law since 2016
International sports law and anti-doping regulations are increasingly trending topics among representatives of national sports federations, lawyers and experts. The CECJ has launched a series of seminars involving WADA experts, representatives of the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne (CAS), as well as representatives of FIFA, UEFA, FIFA and other international sports federations based in Switzerland.
INTERPOL and Extradition since 2020
The CECJ offers INTERPOL and Extradition as one of its most insightful programmes. There are three components where lectures from international experts (touching upon criminal law) are followed by case studies with an explanation of the applicable provisions of international treaties. The third component addresses practical aspects of international legal mechanisms against unfounded charges and detentions.
MICHELE DE SALVIA
Registrar-Chancellor of the European Court of Human Rights (1998-2001), Vice-President of the International Institute of Human Rights, Strasbourg, FRANCE
CECJ has become an integral part of reality among organizations that are skillfully engaged in the professional training and retraining of lawyers and attorneys at law who pay special attention to the protection of fundamental rights in Europe. The many programs and seminars conducted by the Center, especially for representatives of the judiciary and the legal profession, are proof of many years of experience and testify to the effectiveness and high professionalism achieved in the organization of such training programs.
Former Judge of the European Court of Human Rights (1999-2012)
These seminars are organized at the highest level. The program and conditions of participation in such seminars cater for the participants’ profiles. The schedule is observed almost by the minute. The fact that these seminars have been going on for several years along with the expanding geography indicates the undoubted practical benefits of this form of “inclusive training”.
