A phenomenon that can be generally observed in the 21st century is that legal problems and their solutions are becoming increasingly complex. This in turn has brought certain areas of law – ones which were perhaps somewhat neglected by the general public until now – such as constitutional law and human rights into a position of greater prominence. Indeed, these two fields of law are no longer merely the domain of “bleeding-heart liberals” – they are important to all of us, due to the simple fact that they encompass legislation and opportunities to assert ones rights that can allow us to resolve legal issues quickly and effectively.
The scope of issues that can be solved through the instruments of constitutional law and human rights law is exceptionally broad, but we can offer a few examples here: the violation of property rights (timely issues that are relevant here are the various fiscal proceedings, expropriation without proper indemnification, etc.); criminal law issues (violation of the right to a free trial, lengthy pre-trial detention, and conditions of imprisonment); and finally of course, “classic” human rights violations as well, such as violations of the freedom of religion, freedom of expression or association. Due to the close connection between constitutional law and human rights, the Law Office also takes on litigation related to personality rights (such as libel or slander cases), labour law cases (wrongful dismissal and similar disputes), as well as provides advisory services in connection with data protection and procedures related to the publication of data in the public interest.
The list could go on, but instead, I will share the advice of a former colleague at the ECHR with regards to when it is appropriate to turn to the remedies offered by the public law, that is, “whenever you were involved in proceedings or an event which cannot be deemed fair”.
