THE EQUALITY ACADEMY FOR (FUTURE) LAWYERS
The Polish Society of Anti-Discrimination Law, along with the European Law Students Association ELSA Poland, cordially invite you to take part in the free educational project Equality Academy, addressed to the people preparing to perform or performing legal professions.
Throughout the project, an innovative educational program is to be created. Organizations will be encouraging chambers of legal advisers and advocates, law faculties, student organizations and other entities operating in the field of anti-discrimination and human rights education to use it in the legal education programs.
The effectiveness of the developed program will be tested during the pilot edition of the Equality Academy, which will start in May 2021 and will last until May 2022. Participants of the Academy will join a series of 4 meetings (about 60 hours of lessons).
Details about the Academy program can be found on the website (http://www.ptpa.org.pl/projekty/akademia-rownosci/). In addition to the direct participation in the meetings, participants of the Academy will take part in a mentoring program conducted in cooperation with experienced attorneys in pro bono proceedings, cooperating with PTPA, which will enable the creation of a professional development plan and cooperation in the field of human rights protection and counteracting future discrimination.
Our aim is to build new cooperation networks, thanks to which participants of the Academy will be able to support each other in the future, exchange experiences, and conduct (independently or in cooperation with non-governmental organizations) interventionist and educational activities aspiring at sensitizing the society to the rights of minorities and communally resisting fundamentalist movements.
This special program, which offers cooperation with the best experts in Poland, as well as support in planning a professional career, requires exceptional commitment. Therefore, we invite people who are ready and willing to work hard to participate in the Equality Academy program, having regard to use the acquired experience in practice afterwards.
