ILS for Judges, Lawyers and Legal Educators
International labour standards adopted by the International Labour Organization are important tools for drawing up national legislation. Moreover, international labour law is a highly valuable resource for domestic judges and lawyers seeking to settle labour disputes.
Courts are increasingly drawing on international labour standards, and on the work of the ILO’s supervisory bodies, to interpret and complement their domestic law. At the same time, the demand for training in this area is growing. To meet this demand, the International Training Centre of the ILO (ITC-ILO), in collaboration with the International Labour Standards Department, has conducted training courses for judges, lawyers and legal educators since 1999.
