HELP Programme in the SEE Region through the SEELS Network!

HELP Programme in the Western Balkans (Training of Trainers)

All the actors in the legal system have a role and responsibility in the way human rights are protected in the countries. It is, therefore, crucial that legal professionals are aware how to refer to European and international human rights protection mechanisms in their daily work.

HELP Training-of-Trainers sessions (ToTs) are used as one of the tools to support National Training Institutions and Bar Associations, to deliver high quality and tailor-made trainings on human rights to legal professionals. Therefore, HELP courses are adequate to be used as a resource in the higher legal education.

It is expected that ToTs for the higher legal education institutions will contribute to expanding the scope of the resources available to the Law Faculties in the human rights’ education.

The Training-of-Trainers of the HELP Programme for higher legal education professionals is being held at the Faculty in Law in Belgrade, 6-7 November. The event is organized by the Council of Europe in cooperation with the SEELS Network.

SEELS aims to further harmonise curricula across the SEE region and to organise and offer additional postgraduate and doctoral courses as well as summer schools. At the same time SEELS also supports the exchange of lecturers and students among the participating law schools and invites leading international academics and practitioners to South Eastern Europe. Besides, SEELS designs programmes of executive training for different legal professions.


SEELS facilitates intensified academic legal research in the region by connecting leading academics in the fields of common interest and organises joint conferences, research programs  and forums. Thereby, the academics of the region are linked with their counterparts from the leading European or other international law schools and research institutes.


SEELS provides quality and easy accessible regional publications on relevant legal topics, publishes proceedings, analyses, findings and research papers from organised legal research forums and other events. SEELS also publishes the SEE Law Journal which is the first regional law journal in English language in South East Europe. It offers legal researchers and practitioners a discursive space for scholarly exchange on the issues of legal reform and harmonisation on the domestic level in direct relation with questions regarding regional cooperation as well as European integration.
