EMLE's real impact on policymaking:
EMLE alumni have contributed to a project by the European Commission, which had a tangible impact on EU policymaking.
On 21 December 2015, the Financial Times published the article "Brussels to crack down on cross-border postal prices”, describing how parcel delivery prices are inconsistent across EU borders and restrain trade in the internal market. A group of EMLE alumni, acting as consultants for the European Commission, have contributed to the dataset on which these findings are based.
Welcome to EMLE - The European Master in Law and Economics programme!
Welcome to the website of the European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE) programme!
This programme offers the unique opportunity for interdisciplinary studies of law and economics at two or even three European and Non-European universities. Each partner university awards a Master degree (equivalent to LL.M. / M.A. / M.Sc.).
The programme provides students with an advanced understanding of the economic effects of divergent laws and prepares students for a professional career, for example, in public organisations, in multinational law firms or consultancy firms. Graduates are also well prepared for doctorate research in a Ph.D. programme such as the European Doctorate in Law and Economics (EDLE).
The EMLE has been recognized by the European Commission as an Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus Master Programme of "outstanding academic quality". The Erasmus Mundus label allows the EMLE programme to annually grant a substantial number of scholarships (including several full scholarships to non-European students).
Moreover the highest ranked admitted non-European applicants (without an Erasmus+ scholarship) will be offered a partial waiver This also applies to a substantial number of European applicants. Erasmus+ Mobility Grants are available to eligible European and non-European EMLE students to offset the additional costs of mobility.
On this website, you will find information regarding the participating universities, the annual Midterm Meeting, the application procedure, the fees and the Alumni network.
We cordially invite you to join our international EMLE family!
"The opportunities afforded to me by the EMLE program were absolutely wonderful. The dual academic approaches of economic analysis and the legal reasoning means that you come out with policy and strategic understanding. The knowledge received by the EMLE program is encyclopaedic yet somehow profound enough to open many doors, professionally, and academically. I find myself better prepared than most to pursue my research here in Paris."
