Thesis supervision in Aix-en-Provence:

Outside of the thesis seminars, each student will discuss the problematic of the thesis, the argumentation and the relevant literature with his/her supervisor. The mode of interaction between the student and the supervisor (deadline for outline, discussion on main arguments, eventual feedback on draft, side meetings with other competent scholars) are set during their first face-to-face meeting that takes place soon after the student’s arrival at Aix-Marseille University.

"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."
