Hi all,

The admission requirements for the Geneva Academy's LLM in international human rights and humanitarian law are described on the website as below:

"A full degree in law (received by June at the latest) enabling the applicant to sit the bar exam in the relevant country; or another degree if the applicant has a significant amount of training in public international law and courses related to our programme (e.g. international human rights law, international humanitarian law, international criminal law)"

I was wondering if anyone has ever been admitted to the LLM programme without previously having an LLB or similar background in law (which qualifies one to sit the bar exam)? If so, how much/what kind of relevant experience in PIL did you have?

Thanks in advance!
