10 reasons for choosing the LLM at the Geneva Academy:
The Geneva Academy LLM programme turned out to be the best year of my life. I not only had the opportunity to learn about international humanitarian law and human rights from some of the best scholars in the world, my participation in the LLM also left me with some of the best friends I ever made!
During one week, Berta Fernández Rosón, Melina Fidelis Tzourou and Yulia Mogutova – currently enrolled in our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights – represented the Geneva Academy at the 34th edition of the Jean-Pictet Competition that took place in Denpasar, Indonesia. They reached the finals of the competition.
As part of the programme’s annual study trip, students of our LLM in International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and Human Rights travelled to Belgrade, Sarajevo and Budapest where they met experts and institutions who work in the fields of IHL, international human rights law and international criminal law.
