Employers & EMLE
The EMLE programme is designed to produce future lawyers and economists capable of success in an international framework.
For law students, knowledge of the specific regulations of their home country is too narrow a base for counselling firms that are active in international trade. Additionally, knowledge of the economic effects of legal rules has become indispensable for understanding their clients’ commercial needs.
Similarly, economics students will profit from an accurate understanding of the institutional legal framework of market economies. For both lawyers and economists, knowledge of the other discipline and international contacts are crucial for a successful career.
The European Master Programme in Law and Economics is the institutional response to these challenges.
Consequently, many graduates of the programme have gone on to become Ph.D. students and professors of law and economics or judges at high-level courts and advisors to international law firms, to name but a few.
"Dear Prospective EMLE Students, Dear Professors,
I am very happy for being an EMLE student and in particular having had the chance to study in two renowned universities, respectively ILE/Hamburg University-Germany and RILE, Eramus University Rotterdam.
Being a non EU student, I was eligible and lucky to be granted the Eramus Mundus Merit Scholarship from the European Commission for Education and Science.
This programme has enabled me to make use of economic methods to explain the efficiency of laws. I was impressed from the high profile of lecturers and their devotion to this school of thought. EMLE Programme is not like a usual LL.M. programme - it goes beyond by providing new insights and approaches.
Furthermore, the EMLE programme helped me to build up precious friendship with young people coming all over the continents! I miss my EMLE friends.
Last but not least, My special thanks and gratitude go to Prof. Dr. Thomas Eger for his patience, very high teaching performance and kindness.
