The Right of Access to Court in European Law, with Special Reference to Article 6(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights and to European Community Law

The right of access to a court can usefully be studied both under the European Convention on Human Rights and under European Community law. Each of these two systems of law can be regarded as providing, within its field of operation, certain "supra-national" guarantees of that right. The Convention, drawn up within the Council of Europe, guarantees fundamental rights which the Member States (now numbering 40) are required to observe; that observance is supervised by the European Commission and Court of Human Rights, established by the Convention and having their seat in Strasbourg.
