The First International CRIMHUM Conference was held on February 20-21, 2020 in the glorious city of Lviv. Lviv National University named after Ivan Franko was the host university.

The aim of the conference was to draw attention to the Erasmus+ CRIMHUM project and its interim results, as well as to discuss issues of modern legal education in the field of criminal justice.

 

Lviv was not chosen for the event by chance. This city is significant for all nations participating in the CRIMHUM project. Lviv region is the center of cultures. The Ukrainian people have been living here for a long time, although there were times when Ukrainians, Lithuanians and Belarusians were in one state - the Grand Duchy of Lithuania (later - the Rzecz Pospolita). After the partition of the Rzecz Pospolita, these lands were ceded to the Austrian Crown. During the conference, the participants learned that in the Nikolaev district of the Lviv region more than 1000 years ago there lived white Croats. The French and Germans came here, although not always with good intentions.

 

The conference was attended by representatives of the participating universities of the consortium: the University of Graz (project coordinator / Austria), the Faculty of Law of the University of Rijeka (Croatia), Vilnius University (Lithuania), Belarusian State University (Minsk, Belarus), Hrodna State University named after Yanka Kupala (Belarus), Lviv National University named after Ivan Franko (Ukraine), Yaroslav Mudryi National Law University (Kharkiv, Ukraine), National University “Odesa Law Academy” (Ukraine).

 

There were reports from representatives of

other Ukrainian universities (Lviv State University of internal affairs, Institute of Jurisprudence and Psychology of the Lviv Polytechnic National University, Law faculty of the Ternopil National Economic University, Ivano-Frankivsk Institute of Law of the National University "Odesa Law Academy", Chernivtsi Institute of Law of the National University "Odesa Law Academy", Khmelnytsky university of management and law)

as well as the stake-holders (Investigative department of Lviv branch of National police of Ukraine, Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine, Halytsky District Court of Lviv, Prosecution office of Lviv region, State bureau of investigation of Ukraine).

 

The first day of the conference was opened with a welcoming speech by the Dean of the Law Faculty of the Lviv National University named after Ivan Franko Prof. Volodymyr Burdin. He noted the importance of the CRIMHUM project for Ukrainian legal education. A welcoming speech was also made by Professor Dr. Vasyl Nor, Head of the Department of Criminal Procedure and Criminalistics.

 

Each report made a heated discussion. Of particular note, the report of the Prof. Viacheslav Navrotski "How to teach criminal law, but not legislation?". It raised the problem of the need to learn the law, rather than constantly changing legislation, so that students can understand the very essence of the rule of law. Prof. Vasyl Nor described the reforms in the institute of settlement in criminal proceedings in Ukraine. Dr. Igor Martinović and Iva Parenta raised the problem of upholding human rights while using firearms: European standards and challenges to young professionals in Central and Eastern Europe. Dr. Olga Petrova explained the need for training in the interrogation of minors in criminal proceedings. Dr. Olena Kharytonova devoted her report to gender equality issues in the legal profession. Prof. Tuliakov revealed sustainable development goals, human rights and criminal jurisprudence. Dr. Vadzim Samaryn revealed the issues of human rights violations during the use of the Interpol mechanism and told what a modern law student in this field needs to know. Dr. Larisa Brinch informed participants about the ECHR practice on the verification of the means of proof in criminal proceedings (Khmelnytsky university of management and law)

 

The first day of the Conference was followed by a Round-table discussion «Current issues of reforming criminal justice in EU, Ukraine and Belarus» with the participation of Ukrainian stakeholders, which was consisting of two sessions. The discussion was moderated by Dr. Olena Kharytonova.

 

As a result of the conference, it was noted that it is necessary to overcome the difficulty of teaching students relevant judicial practice (especially the practice of the ECHR) in the light of changing legal positions.

 

The host University offered guests the opportunity to get acquainted with the culture of Lviv. On the first day of the Conference, guests were given a tour of the University Museum, introducing it to its ancient history, as well as the forensic laboratory.

On the second day, a walking tour was organized in the Old City of Lviv. The acting talent of the guide did not allow the conference participants to freeze in the frosty streets of the beautiful city.
