Students for Human Rights

The Polish branch of the European Law Students' Association (ELSA) has issued an annual report on its human rights activities in 2007. The report, released on International Human Rights Day Dec. 10, 2007 says that ELSA Poland has organized a range of projects to enhance knowledge of human rights protection among college students this year. The organization has held seminars, conferences, competitions and training courses in association with other institutions such as UNICEF, Amnesty International and the Helsinki Human Rights Foundation, with support from Ombudsman Janusz Kochanowski. All these organizations held a number of educational programs across the country, including seminars on the freedom of speech, the death penalty, the rights of patients, and unjustified arrests.


Mediation for the Impecunious

The Law Department of the University of Warsaw and the Stefan Batory Foundation have launched a program that offers legal mediation for people with low incomes, enabling them to use the services of professional mediators free of charge or for a fee of zl.10-30. The organizations say pursuing debts in court is often inefficient and too costly for poor people, making mediation a good alternative. In the United States and other countries where this method has proved to be efficient, the state pays for mediators in minor cases.
