• Vincent BERGER is primarily an expert of the European Convention of Human Rights (“the Convention”).
  • He has served the European Court of Human Rights ("the ECtHR") for over thirty-five years, which allowed him to get inside the procedure and practice of the international jurisdiction and to contribute to their improvement.
  • In particular, he was the Registrar of one of the four sections of the ECtHR for over eight years. In this capacity he sat alongside judges at hearings and deliberations of each chamber constituted within his section.
  • Sole jurisconsult of the ECtHR, Vincent BERGER ensured for seven years the quality and consistency of the Strasbourg case law, as evidenced by the Liber amicorum[1]which was given to him on the occasion of his departure. An abundant case law, as there is several thousand decisions and judgments every year. A complex case law, since it is based on forty-seven Member States of the Council of Europe. A varied case law, since it covers all areas of law, with a focus on fair trial and protection of property. 
  • This expertise led the President of the Paris Bar Association to appoint Vincent BERGER expert to the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE), as a member of the committee "Permanent Delegation to the European Court of Human Rights".
