Numerous practical examples, problems encountered in work, as well as ways of approaching and solving them were outlined through a series of constructive discussions.

Also, we would like to thank to our lecturers, as well as the Judicial Academy and the Office of the Ombudswoman of the Republic of Croatia for participating in the organization of the workshop.
