Lawyers from the Constitutional Court of Ukraine continue to improve their knowledge about the work of the Latvian Constitutional Court
Yesterday, on 12 October, on the third day of the experience-sharing project, employees of the Legal Service of the Ukrainian Constitutional Court could study in-depth the methodology for reviewing restrictions on a person’s fundamental rights, used by the Constitutional Court. Following the independent work of the project participants, Kristaps Tamužs, the project expert and Advisor to the Constitutional Court, gave a lecture in a webinar format, providing information also on the interpretation of the norms of the Satversme, in particular, in their interconnection with the European and international law.
Today, 13 October, was the fourth day of the experience-sharing, during which Alla Spale, the project manager and expert, organised training on the topic “The Legal Effects of the Constitutional Court’s Rulings”. During the first half of the day, the lawyers of the Ukrainian Constitutional Court acquired theoretical knowledge and worked independently with the materials prepared by the project experts. Afterwards, Alle Spale delivered a lecture in a webinar format, explaining how the rulings by the Constitutional Court were prepared, adopted and enforced. The lecture was followed by a discussion, including a Q&A session.
Friday, 15 October, will be the final day of the project. The participants from the Ukrainian Constitutional Court will study in-depth the materials, prepared by the project expert, on the topic “The Recent Judicature of the Constitutional Court in Cases, Initiated on the Basis of Constitutional Complaints”. A round-table discussion will follow, focusing on the most recent rulings by the Constitutional Court, the methodology used therein and the findings by the Constitutional Court in some of the cases (No. 2018-25-01, No. 2019-01-01 and No. 2019-08-01). The project will conclude by sharing the opinions on reaching the aims set for the project, focusing on the benefits for both parties from the cooperation implemented.
