Application for the Academic Year 2018/2019
Dear prospective applicant,
The EMLE application is open for the Academic Year 2018-2019. The opening was slightly delayed this year, as we are busy with some important improvements for the next student intake: as of 2018-2019, the EMLE Programme will introduce the possibility of specializations in three EMLE tracks: 1) the Public and International Track, 2) the Innovation and Intellectual Property (IP) Track, and 3) the Markets, Corporations & Regulators (MCR) Track.
Also, our long-standing third term partner, the University of Haifa, will move to the first term EMLE education, in order to teach the foundations of Law and Economy education, next to the Universities of Hamburg and Rotterdam.
In the third term, we are happy to announce two important new EMLE partner Universities: the University Pompeu Fabra (UPF, Barcelona, Spain) and LUMSA (Rome, Italy). Please find an overview of the new EMLE structure, course descriptions and the general description of the new EMLE track system following the links.
We are looking forward to your applications for the EMLE Academic Year 2018-2019!
The EMLE Team
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!
"To feel how international and interdisciplinary law can be, to be able to both predict and examine the economic and political effects of legislative as well as judicial decisions and to try out the economical way of thinking to explain people’s behavior in a variety of different situations - that is how EMLE broadened my academic horizon.
However, EMLE taught me maybe even more on a personal level by setting the conditions for wonderful times with wonderful people from various places and backgrounds. I have found good friends who showed me their view of the world, and with whom I am happy to share EMLE travel experiences.
All in all I am fond of this year and of its surely long-lasting influence on my life."
