Expertise

  • Vincent BERGER is primarily an expert of the European Convention of Human Rights (“the Convention”).
  • He has served the European Court of Human Rights ("the ECtHR") for over thirty-five years, which allowed him to get inside the procedure and practice of the international jurisdiction and to contribute to their improvement.
  • Sole jurisconsult of the ECtHR, Vincent BERGER ensured for seven years the quality and consistency of the Strasbourg case law, as evidenced by the Liber amicorum[1] which was given to him on the occasion of his departure. An abundant case law, as there is several thousand decisions and judgments every year. A complex case law, since it is based on forty-seven Member States of the Council of Europe. A varied case law, since it covers all areas of law, with a focus on fair trial and protection of property. 
  • This expertise led the President of the Paris Bar Association to appoint Vincent BERGER expert to the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE), as a member of the committee "Permanent Delegation to the European Court of Human Rights".
