The training course’s programme is based on a number of pillars, most notably the NCHR’s competence in the legal representation of plaintiffs, examples of the council’s legal representation, examples of the relevant efforts of peer national institutions that provide legal assistance, the United Nations and Human Rights Protection, its mechanisms and competences, safeguards of fair a just trials in light of the constitution and international conventions.
Moreover, the training course presents the types of complaints eligible for the institutions’s intervention before courts, legal memorandum’s drafting skills, civic and political rights, and the right to physical safety, economic and social rights, the right to housing, studying legal and constitutional texts, and using international convention in legal representation of plaintiffs.
