Course content
Due to the content of the course interactive approach will be used. In the first phase students will be introduced to basic discrimination issues. Together with a teacher the most common problems that occur in legal practice will be identified and evaluated. Real solved cases will be used to demonstrate particular procedures that were successfully applied. As regards selection of cases we will cooperate with NGO Liga lidských práv. The key task for the students will be to solve individual discrimination cases. Students will consult all steps taken with the teacher, who provides them with all necessary help during looking for solution. Every solved case will be concluded with an evaluation of the facts and legislation status and suggested procedures.
