The HELP courses from the Council of Europe: Exploring data protection in judicial decisions

Enhancing privacy rights and legal certainty in the digital age

The Council of Europe's HELP programme is an educational initiative that offers training sessions for legal professionals across Europe. The courses cover a wide range of human rights topics, reflecting the diverse areas of work within the Council of Europe, and aiming to enhance the protection of human rights on a national level.

The latest course on the platform addresses data protection in publication of judicial decisions. It defines personal data, and delves into collecting, using, and protecting them. As legal professionals navigate the complexities of data protection in the judicial context, this course equips them with the necessary knowledge and skills to uphold privacy rights while promoting transparency and legal certainty.

As this topic gains significant relevance, considering the broader implications of open access to justice in the digital age, it emphasises the delicate balance between transparency and privacy rights under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, but also regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and Convention 108+. The course primarily targets judicial professionals but is also pertinent for lawyers, public authorities, university students, and civil society organisations seeking to deepen their understanding of data protection in legal contexts.

HELP empowers legal professionals to address intricate data protection issues, thereby safeguarding fundamental human rights and ensuring the rule of law. For those eager to delve deeper into the topic, data.europa also presents numerous datasets in the justice & legal systems category, offering further insights into the intersection of data protection and the legal system. Dive into this pioneering course and explore related datasets on data.europa to enrich your understanding.
