Master’s Programmes in International Law

Studying International Law as an international student in Switzerland offers an overall look on countries and states in an international context and, also, a deep analysis of the main areas of international security and the UN system, and the tools necessary to understand the issues surrounding armed conflicts, terrorism, modern warfare, and the security of international transactions and intellectual property. This programme is ideal for graduates or professionals with no law background but an interest in the theory and practice of international law and desire to become generalist in international security and the UN system.  Upon successful completion of a liberal law programme, you will be all-rounders and have knowledge and understanding of the rules, systems, techniques, practices, dynamics and discourses by virtue of which international security discourse develops. This programme can also be used as a route into PhD research.
