The Practical Guide on Admissibility Criteria describes the conditions of admissibility which an application to the Court must meet. Practitioners and prospective applicants should study this Guide carefully before deciding to bring a case. They may also wish to refer to The individual application under the European Convention on Human Rights (2019) and to the Rules of Court’s Practice Direction on the institution of proceedings. Since 2018 the Admissibility Guide has been updated on a regular basis, like the other case-law guides by Article.
