The master level of the programme is documented through the use of a constitutive method (economic analysis) on a particular subject (law) combined with the fact that this economic analysis is based on a continuous legal comparison.
The programme duration lasts for one academic year with three terms; the first and second terms comprise introductory courses as well as core courses on the major topics in the economic analysis of law, while in the third term, students take specialized courses and write their master thesis.
The programme is led by the EMLE Board of Directors, which supervises the management and handles decision-making on key matters.
Details about the internal organization of the programme (programme coordination, duties of the consortium universities, academic goals at. al.) can be found in the EMLE Consortium Agreement. Please note that the annexes attached to the agreement may have changed since ratification.
"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."
