LLM students have the opportunity to participate in a series of extracurricular activities that allow them to deepen and further discusses topics addressed in class.
This unique series of events relating to military institutions and the law aims to improve our students’ knowledge of military actors and operations and build bridges between the military and civilian worlds.
Military guests – on active duty, retired or from the reserve – discuss military institutions, their missions as well as operational and legal challenges they face in their daily work around these six themes: military organization and operational decision-making; operational law; integration of the law in military training; practical examples of legal challenges in operations; military justice; and weapons systems.
Each briefing is divided into two parts: a presentation aimed at equipping students with basic knowledge on the selected theme, and a discussion, where the guest speaker engages with students on the challenges raised by the theme.
