HELP - Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals.
The European Programme for Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals (HELP) supports the Council of Europe member states in implementing the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) at the national level, in accordance with the Committee of Ministers Recommendation (2004), the 2010 Interlaken Declaration, the 2012 Brighton Declaration and the 2014 Brussels declaration.

HELP precisely aims at providing high-quality and tailor-made training tools to all European legal professionals.
The European Union (EU) countries benefit from the HELP in the 28 Programme, funded by the EU.
