LL.M. in International Law at The Graduate Institute, Geneva (IHEID)


Has anyone applied to the programme of LL.M. in International Law at the Graduate Institute, Geneva for 2017-18?
Has anyone received a decision yet? What is strength of their class and how is reputation of the course?
I am a fresh graduate looking forward to complete my masters in International Law. Thereafter I look forward to work in an I.O. for 2-3 years before I pursue my doctors.
I would really appreciate some expert advice on the same!

Geneva is great to study international law, and the IHEID is very reputable, I think their LL.M. in international law is probably great.

Hi people!
I applied to the program and was invited to have an interview.
Unfortunately about two weeks ago I was notified that I am on the waiting list, so now I am waiting for the final decision.
What about you? And where are you from?

I'm a Czech graduate from London and also on the waiting list for Geneva, have been accepted to the LL.M International Legal Studies in Vienna and to the Leiden International Law Program. Since I have been warned about the Dutch way of treating students in one of the LL.M. Guide Blogs, I rather count on the teaching of Geneva and Vienna. Vienna's professors are so well known academically, that my English superviser recommended Vienna rather than Geneva. Vienna has many international organisations as well like the OSCE and UNCITRAL that my Cousin who is a solicitor says go for Vienna "its a capital of a country too". I don't know if I ought to be too sad about Geneva now. I know that Leiden is famous, but perhaps we ought to aim at the reputation of the teachers? What do you say? Leiden or LL.M. International Legal Studies in Vienna?

I am an international student in the Netherlands and currently pursuing my LL.M. programme in International and European Law. I would highly recommend you pursue your studies in Leiden. It has a very good reputation when it comes to Law programmes and it is one of the best Universities here in the Netherlands and the professors have very good reputation. Further, you will be able to gain access to the renowned international law library, the biggest law library in the world at the Peace Palace in The Hague, where the ICJ and PCA are located (which is few minutes from Leiden). Some of the judges at the ICJ or PCA teaches in Leiden. With reference to the blog you read about the Dutch way of treating students, to be honest I don't see any problem with that because I've been studying here in the Netherlands for couple of years now and I can just tell you my personal experience and so far it has been very good and still it is! A lot of Dutch people do speak very good English! Leiden is such a diverse city and the University is too as well. These are only my personal experiences as an international student.
