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.
"Having a background in Philosophy and Economics, I was very keen on deepening my knowledge of the legal environment of markets and the way it functions. EMLE was the perfect fit. As a program that employs the analytical and rigorous economic approach while at the same time paying tribute to legal complexities, EMLE is not only interesting and academically challenging but also seeks to develop its students 'practical understanding' of how the economy and legal sphere work. This combined with the instruction of leading scholars in the field and a motivated as well as a gracious international student body rounds out the program perfectly. Overall, this makes me feel well-prepared for my PhD studies in the area of the economics of international law."
