Do you really need a lawyer to refer a case to the ECHR?

While not mandatory, we highly recommend engaging the services of a lawyer.

It is always better to choose a specialist lawyer, even if legal representation is not compulsory before the ECHR.

In principle, anyone can bring a case before the ECHR; you do not need to be a lawyer to lodge an application with the European Court of Human Rights, nor do you need to go through a lawyer to send a complaint to the ECHR.

But the procedure at the ECHR has become so complex that it is difficult and even dangerous to do without a lawyer.

We recommend that you use a lawyer who specialises in proceedings before the ECHR, because this is a tricky procedure and many lawyers who do not specialise in the ECHR regularly experience this.

It is preferable to choose a Strasbourg lawyer, who will be less expensive than a Parisian colleague.
