"The EMLE year was un unforgettable experience. Academically, it expanded my understanding of law and economics by offering a unique aproach to a broad range of legal issues using economic reasoning and public policy analysis. Personally, the privilege of earning a master's degree in different countries with a diverse group of students provided an interesting cultural opportunity to widen our horizons about the world."
