Act with us




Since our creation 20 years ago, training has been at the heart of our mission. It constitutes an essential step towards the realisation of our main objective: ensuring a quality defense for those who are denied it.

Our training programmes allow us to :

  • Pass on our experience, skills and practice in the defense of human rights based on our know-how for more than 20 years.
  • Strengthen the power to act of civil society (associations, NGOs, institutions, companies) and actors of the penal chain for the defense and promotion of human rights "where the defense no longer has a voice".



Our training centre works in France with bar associations, training centres and law schools, as well as abroad in international criminal jurisdictions such as the International Criminal Court (ICC). Our training courses are supported by the international cooperation of States and their organisations such as the United Nations and the European Union.

Referenced on Datadock, our organisation has also been awarded Qualiopi certification for its training activities. It is therefore possible to apply for our training courses to be covered by the skills operators (OPCO) as part of ongoing professional training. Approved by the Conseil National des Barreaux (CNB), our training courses can also be taken into account in the compulsory continuing education of lawyers and they can normally be covered by the Fonds interprofessionnel de formation des professionnels libéraux (FIF PL).
