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.
"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.
[EMLE Student 2008/2009]
