Our LLM promotes academic excellence and independent critical thinking. One of its core outputs is an LLM paper (6 ECTS) on a specific issue addressed by the programme and written under the guidance of a faculty member.
This paper, written in English or French, gives students an opportunity to investigate a subject of special interest to them and deepen their knowledge and expertise through research as well as exchanges with experts, scholars and practitioners.
We offer scholarships to outstanding students who are unable to secure the funding required to cover tuition fees and/or the cost of living in Geneva.
Our objective is to produce graduates who will be leaders in the humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice fields.
The Geneva Academy alumni community is made up of over 700 members who work worldwide in the humanitarian and human rights fields.
Participation in this moot court allows students to put in practice the notions and legal tools they have learned in class. It is also an opportunity to explore issues of redress and accountability that form part of transitions following armed conflict or massive human rights abuses.
Articles of War
Our LLM alumnus Ioannis Bamnios – who graduated in October – published the main and very innovative argument of his LLM paper on the ‘conduct of hostilities in occupied territories’ in the leading blog Articles of War of the US Military Academy at West Point.
