The EMLE programme not only provides a rare opportunity for students to synthesize and improve upon their knowledge of law and economics, but it also blends academic excellence with a high level of internationality.
In addition, the EMLE structure allows for idea exchange and networking between students and scholars, lawyers, economists and businesspeople.
The programme covers one academic year, and its master level curriculum is not only documented through the use of a constitutive method (economic analysis) on a particular subject (law) but by the fact that this economic analysis is based on a continuous legal comparison.
The functional approach of the economic analysis of law is well suited to compare different solutions to problems, which are in their essence identical. Since differences between national laws have been at the core of European policy making, the EMLE-Mundus Masters Course offers unique value concerning the EU's central ambitions.
"The EMLE program is a unique chance to broaden one's focus and to dive into interdisciplinary research. Having studied political science before, I wanted to learn more about the economic rationales behind the rules that are governing our everyday life as well as about the potentials to improve them. My expectations were more than fulfilled! With the new tools at hand I was able to start a Ph.D. program at the International Max Planck Research School for Competition and Innovation.
Apart from the outstanding academic quality of the program I cannot think of a better way to get to know energetic people from all around the world. Sitting in a Hamburg dorm and enjoying dinner in a 20sqm kitchen with friends from Italy, Russia, Mexico, Bangladesh, India, China, the Netherlands, Belgium, Brazil, Ireland, Israel, Taiwan and Argentina is what makes the EMLE program an experience of a lifetime."
