ECtHR Publishes Practical Guide for Lawyers on Admissibility Criteria

December 2010 – Strasbourg

In an attempt to stem the flow of obviously inadmissible applications flooding the European Court of Human Rights, the Court’s Registry has published a Practical Guide on Admissibility Criteria for lawyers. The handbook explains in detail the Court’s admissibility criteria and is available in English and French. Versions in other languages, particularly Russian and Turkish, will be available later.
