The Master of Laws is an intensive course of one full year duration, of which only 18 weeks require full classroom attendance.
Teaching modalities includes distance learning (through structured readings and videos, exercises, case notes) on a dedicated platform, lectures, workshops, moot courts, seminars with testimonials and case studies where students actively participate to the class and contribute to the learning process. A study tour in Geneva visiting some international organizations is included in the programme.
During the face-to-face segment class attendance is compulsory every day from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 3.30 pm, with take home exams and seminars that may be scheduled in the evenings and weekends. The training methods are based on lectures, group exercises and case studies to provide skills towards problem solving on topics covered during lectures.
The training materials and legal texts are uploaded on an electronic platform and therefore it is recommended to have a personal laptop (or another device) during the entire programme.
Participants will benefit from the support and involvement of Module coordinators and tutors who will assist and advise them throughout the learning period.
