The EMLE programme started with the academic year 1990-1991. Since then, it grew substantially and has evolved over time. In this, the content and the partner universities has changed over time in order to always provide the best programme possible. We are interested to keep a strong bond to our Alumni and hear from them about their experience and ideas for improvement of their EMLE programme, it is most important for us to be able to give them the possibility to network and benefit from each other’s knowledge on different jurisdictions. Our alumni are from all over the world, so: wherever you go, you will find some fellow EMLEs!

As you can see on the map, our Alumni can be found working and continuing their studies across Europe and the rest of the world. The network continues to grow each year. A lot of Partner Universities invite local Alumni for speeches, open lectures, workshops or Q&A sessions for the current EMLE students. Moreover, every year Alumni attend the Midterm Meeting and offer Networking Sessions.

If you would like to reach out to your former EMLE colleagues or get into touch with EMLE students from different years, you can stay in touch via Facebook or LinkedIn. The EMLE maintains several Facebook groups, including one Alumni Group where EMLE students and Alumni can keep in contact with each other and discuss issues related to Law and Economics. The group is also used by the programme management to post items of possible interest for EMLE Alumni. Registration can be done through Facebook. The group is not accessible for programme applicants. For them, there is an open Facebook page regarding the EMLE which you can visit to acquire information.

All EMLE Alumni are qualified to join the Erasmus Mundus Students and Alumni Association. The EMA offers an itnernational professional and personal network for Erasmus Mundus students and graduates. For more information, please click here.

Most of our Alumni find occupation in the legal sector. Other popular sectors for our graduates are the academic, governmental, consultancy and corporate sectors. We are currently busy building up a strong alumni network. One of the dreams of the alumni network is to connect more experienced EMLE Alumni with current students or recent alumni for career guidance and general information, but also trying to set up internship options for interested students in companies that are in the EMLE network. If your firm would be willing to provide internships or other career opportunities for EMLE students, we would be very happy to get in touch with you about it. Please send an email to if you are interested or if you have any questions.
