We just set up a Geneva Academy Alumni Group on LinkedIn!
This group serves as a community space for those who have graduated from the Geneva Academy or from its predecessor, the University Centre for International Humanitarian Law (CUDIH), to engage in meaningful and intentional networking.
As members of this group, our alumni will be able to:
‘This group is meant to be a space for our alumni to start a discussion, share information about work, discuss challenging questions, offer advice, exchange and connect with peers’ underline Dany Diogo, Coordinator of Master Programmes at the Geneva Academy.
‘We hope to create a strong, close-knit community of alumni and are open ideas and initiatives as we work to develop and strengthen this network’ adds Nathalie Mivelaz Tirabosco, Communication Officer at the Geneva Academy.

Our two LLM students, Anna Lochhead-Sperling and Paula Padrino Vilela participated in the oral rounds of the Nelson Mandela Moot Court. A great opportunity to put into practice the human rights notions learned in class, meet other law students from all around the world and train public speaking and presentation skills.
Students attending this year’s academic track of our MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law developed research proposals on a variety of transitional justice issues, often addressing new approaches and under-explored perspectives.
We look forward to welcoming graduating students, their friends, families and our professors at the 2019 Graduation Ceremony.
