Judges, prosecutors and lawyers occupy a crucial position in society; they are therefore obliged to adopt the highest ethical standards, as their function has a direct impact on public confidence and the administration of justice. Independence, impartiality and efficiency are the defining parameters of an effective judicial system, regardless of the model of the national legal system and the tradition in which it is embedded.

Based on the international framework and relevant case law, the course aims to deepen the knowledge and understanding of professional tools and to develop reflective skills, based on practical examples, to deal with ethical dilemmas in the exercise of professional duties.
