Graduate Institute (IHEID) In theory, there is no gap between the theory and the practice of public international law. In practice, there is. The LL.M. in International Law at The Graduate Institute is specifically designed to bridge this gap.
The LL.M. in International Law is a one-year postgraduate degree course that provides advanced, comprehensive and practical training in international law. Students on the LL.M. Programme gain exposure to world-renowned faculty, benefit from being at the heart of international legal affairs in Geneva and share ideas with other participants who come from an array of different legal backgrounds and perspectives.
The Programme allows for students to tailor their studies according to their particular interests, while compulsory courses provide a firm grounding in public international law. Small tutorials and intensive courses facilitate a deeper exploration of the most pressing questions in the field with professors and practitioners at the cutting edge of international law.
