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.
"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."
