Applying to our programmes – LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights (LLM) and Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law (MTJ) – and moving to Geneva to study at the Geneva Academy is an important decision and many interrogations can arise in relation to this process:
To respond to these many questions, we organize online Q&A information sessions for prospective students interested in our LLM and MTJ. These take place twice a month on Fridays from 13:30 to 14:30 (Geneva time, CET) and allow prospective students to exchange with our Student Office.
‘There are no silly questions and these sessions precisely aim at both presenting our programmes and hearing from prospective students. We very much appreciate these exchanges that allow us to clarify our application process and one’s journey from the submission of an application to the enrolment in our programmes’ explains our Head of Education Dr Clotilde Pégorier.
Upcoming information sessions will take place on:
Prior registration is required to attend one of these sessions.

For the 2023–2024 academic year, we offer 16 online short courses covering legal issues and topics relevant to armed conflicts.
The Geneva Human Rights Platform facilitated the drafting process of the UN Committee on Enforced Disappearances' very first General Comment (GC) – now out for consultation – on enforced disappearances in the context of migration.
On the occasion of the launch in Geneva of the volume Armed Groups and International Law. In the Shadowland of Legality and Illegality, panelists will reflect on the status of armed groups within a complex legal landscape.
In this book launch, Patryk Labuda will discuss with leading experts and practitioners his new book International Criminal Tribunals and Domestic Accountability. In The Court’s Shadow.
This online short course will examine the sources of international humanitarian law (IHL), as well as the threshold criteria for its applicability in an armed conflict
This online short course reviews the origins of international criminal law, its relationship with the international legal order including the UN Security Council and its coexistence with national justice institutions. The scope of international crimes – genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and the crime of aggression – is considered alongside initiatives to expand or add to these categories.
