Basu shall be joining one of these universities for a Masters in Public International Law, which has long been his area of interest.

The one year taught course offers highly qualified and intellectually outstanding students the opportunity of pursuing their legal studies at an advanced level in a challenging environment. Similarly, the LL.M. in International Law at Geneva is a one-year postgraduate degree course that provides advanced, comprehensive and practical training in international law. Students on the LL.M.
