Anita Zikmane introduced the professors to the information about the publicly available resources of the Senate and provided practical advice on how to work with those resources more efficiently. The participants of the remote seminar got acquainted with the possibilities provided by case-law classifiers on the website of the Supreme Court www.at.gov.lv. Anita Zikmane also spoke about other useful information available on the website – about case-law studies, historical case-law of the Latvian Senate, database of the European Court of Human Rights rulings translated into Latvian, etc.

The lecturers of the Law College acknowledged the information available on the website of the Supreme Court as highly valuable, because the findings of the Senate and the explanation of how a particular legal provision should be interpreted are very important when working with students.

Cooperation with the law faculties of higher education institutions is marked as one of the operational priorities in the strategy of the Supreme Court.
