Employers & EMLE
The EMLE programme is designed to produce future lawyers and economists capable of success in an international framework.
For law students, knowledge of the specific regulations of their home country is too narrow a base for counselling firms that are active in international trade. Additionally, knowledge of the economic effects of legal rules has become indispensable for understanding their clients’ commercial needs.
Similarly, economics students will profit from an accurate understanding of the institutional legal framework of market economies. For both lawyers and economists, knowledge of the other discipline and international contacts are crucial for a successful career.
The European Master Programme in Law and Economics is the institutional response to these challenges.
Consequently, many graduates of the programme have gone on to become Ph.D. students and professors of law and economics or judges at high-level courts and advisors to international law firms, to name but a few.
"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."
