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

The Geneva Academy Student Association is responsible for organizing the LLM study trip, which is partially financed by 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.

To teach International Humanitarian Law (IHL) at the Geneva Academy is a unique pleasure and challenge: nowhere else will you find so many brilliant young people from all around the world, keen to specialize in IHL and to work in this field; nowhere else will I be subject to so many challenging questions on the most cutting-edge IHL issues, many of which I discover thanks to the students, but some of which I am perfectly unable to answer.
