A Great Networking Opportunity

In the Spring Semester, the study trip allows students to experience the practical side of international humanitarian law (IHL), international human rights law (IHRL) and international criminal law (ICL). This trip is a marvellous opportunity to understand the work of international organizations and NGOs, meet staff and experts and discuss IHL, IHRL and ICL issues.

Organized by Geneva Academy Students

LLM students have the opportunity to organize a study trip, with a small contribution from the Geneva Academy.

Past Study Trips

In past academic years, our LLM students had the opportunity to travel to the Balkans (Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Serbia), to The Hague, or to Solferino. They often recall these trips as one of the best experiences of the programme, which allowed them to put into practice what they have learned in class.

During my study at the Geneva Academy, I came to realize that international law is not just limited to theoretical issues. Professors who are teaching us are not just interpreting the theoretical dimensions but also sharing their practical experience.
