January 2012

The senior associate of the ILO AstapovLawyers Ivan Lishchyna co-authored the guide for the judges “The application of the European Convention on Human Rights at the consideration of the commercial cases”.

The Guide contains the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights and European Commission of Human Rights regarding Article 6 of the Convention, which guarantees the protection of the right to fair trial and Article 1 of Protocol 1, which provides for the protection of the right to peaceful enjoyment of possessions. Moreover, the edition contains the review of the practice of the convention bodies and illustrates both the peculiarities of the interpretation of the elements of the rights set out in the Convention and the ways, how they could be applied in the domestic proceedings.

Ivan Lishchyna noted: “I was honoured to be admitted into the team of Ukrainian and European lawyers, and enjoyed working with them in preparation of this edition. I am extremely grateful to the editors who worked very hard to reconcile a number of isolated parts prepared by different experts in the comprehensive text. We hope that the Guide would spark interest among judges and lawyers, dealing with commercial cases and would prove useful in their practice”.

The Guide was published with financial support of the European Union and the Council of Europe in the course of the Joint Programme “Transparency and Efficiency of the Judicial System of Ukraine”.
