This event, hosted by the Geneva Academy and the ICRC during the 33rd International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, will serve to discuss the new Guidelines on this issue with Conference participants.

The international environment of the LLM offers a unique opportunity to confront different realities and cultures. The size of classes for optional courses facilitates an interactive dialogue between the professor and students, which in turn produces a vibrant exchange and enables a practical analysis of the subject besides the traditional theoretical one.
Core courses provide a solid legal basis and understanding of public international law, international humanitarian law, international human rights law, international refugee law and international criminal law.
This unique series of events relating to military institutions and the law aims to improve our students’ knowledge of military actors and operations.
Our LLM students can participate in two moot courts, the prestigious Jean-Pictet Competition on international humanitarian law and the Nuremberg Moot Court Competition.
