The Grand Geneva Academy Hotel: Diary of a Director

Former directors of the Geneva Academy and of the Centre universitaire de droit international humanitaire (CUDIH), the predecessor of the Geneva Academy, shared their memories as heads of these institutions.

Alumni Gathering Directors Panel

Antonio Coco and Jean-Baptiste Maillart, Teaching Assistants at the Geneva Academy and former LLM students, introduced the panel with a great touch of humor and shared with the public some little secrets of the daily life at the Academy.

Around the theme ‘The Grand Geneva Academy Hotel: Diary of a Director’ Professors Louis Doswald-Beck, Robert Kolb, Andrew Clapham and Robert Roth discussed the genesis of the LLM programme, the implementation of additional tutorials to complete core course, and the switch to English as official language of instruction which allowed a broader range of students to join our programmes. They also mentioned the first steps into the Villa Moynier, which before becoming our headquarter was left to crumble. In the end, the speakers gave to students interesting insights of the Geneva Academy’s backstage scene in an informal and convivial atmosphere.
