Institute for Legal Intervention

Training & Co-learning

We seek to help bring about change in the societies in which we live and use the law as a means to achieve this change. Here, our vision of lawyering strongly diverges from what most lawyers learn in their studies. The education and training of future human rights lawyers are part of ECCHR's organizational philosophy. The Critical Legal Training curriculum encourages trainees, fellows, Referendar*innen (German trainee lawyers), partners and alumn* to engage with critical perspectives on the law, postcolonial theory, feminism and intersectionality. Since its establishment, over 400 lawyers from almost 50 countries have taken part in ECCHR's Critical Legal Training.
