LLM in International Humanitarian Law


NapZ
Hi everyone,

I am looking to be part of a LLM programme during the year 2015-2016 that offers a specialization in International Humanitarian Law (or Armed Conflict Law/War Law). I am planning on applying to the Geneva Academy, but I also want to apply in the US.

However, it looks like there are only a few universities that offer a specialization in this field. I just bumped into Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, which looks very interesting so far. Most universities seem to focus on International Human Rights Law rather than IHL.

This is why I am posting this. Is there anyone who could advise me on where I could apply ?

Thanks a lot !

Georgetown has a National Security LLM which offers many IHL courses as well.

NYU International legal studies LLM could also be a good option.
