Are you a young law graduate who wants to gain experience in an international Organisation working for human rights, democracy and the rule of law? Do you want to help the European Court of Human Rights to ensure respect for the human rights of 700 million Europeans? Dealing with applications alleging violations of the rights set out in the European Convention on Human Rights interests you? If so, this Programme may be the good opportunity for you.

Who we are

With over 2200 staff representing all its 46 member States, the Council of Europe is a multicultural Organisation. We all strive towards protecting human rights, democracy and the rule of law and our three core values - professionalism, integrity and respect - guide the way we work.

The European Court of Human Rights oversees the implementation of the European Convention on Human Rights in the member States. Individuals can bring complaints of human rights violations to the Strasbourg Court once all possibilities of appeal have been exhausted in the member State concerned. See the Court’s  website for information about its activities.

The Council of Europe has its headquarters in Strasbourg (France) and has external presence in more than twenty countries. See here for more information about the Council of Europe external presence.

Your role

The Junior Professional Programme opens the Council of Europe’s doors to people at the start of their career, giving them an opportunity to gain experience working with this pan-European institution. At the Court, you will benefit from regular working contact with experienced members of the Registry and with the judges. While dealing with individual applications originating from your own legal system and assisting senior colleagues in handling more complex applications, you benefit from the Registry’s in-house training programme and deepen your knowledge of the functioning of the European Court of Human Rights and the Convention case-law. The length of employment of Junior Professionals is limited to a maximum of four years under this scheme.
