10 reasons for choosing the LLM at the Geneva Academy:
The Geneva Academy offers an exceptional quality of training in international humanitarian law, international human rights law, public international law, refugee law, and international criminal law. The interdisciplinarity and rigour of this programme greatly contributed to my professional development, both at the international criminal tribunals in the Hague and at the ICRC.
The Geneva Academy team – Anna Lochhead-Sperling and Paula Padrino Vilela who are currently enrolled in our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights – successfully qualified for the oral rounds in the Nelson Mandela moot court.
From 20 to 24 February 2019, students of our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights travelled to Belgrade where they met experts and institutions who work in the fields of international humanitarian law, international human rights law, and international criminal law.
The event provided a unique opportunity for discussion, analysis and debate in order to ensure the continued relevance of academia's contribution to the various branches of international law applicable to armed conflicts.
