erasmuslogoWe are happy to announce that the EMLE has been certified by the European Commission as an Erasmus + course. EMLE thereby joins only 18 other Master courses that were deemed worthy to continue under the Erasmus label after its reorganization in 2014.

Most likely EMLE will be able to offer up to 8 scholarships for Non-EU-applicants (more information will be available soon).

We are delighted and happy about this ongoing opportunity to extend the reach of law & economics education and to provide high-quality education affordable to everyone.

home picture Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the website of the European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE) programme!

This programme offers the unique opportunity for interdisciplinary studies of law and economics at two or even three European and Non-European universities. Each partner university awards a Master degree (LL.M. / M.A. / M.Sc.).

The programme provides students with an advanced understanding of the economic effects of divergent laws and prepares students for a professional career, for example, in public organisations, in multinational law firms or consultancy firms. Graduates are also well prepared for doctorate research in a Ph.D. programme such as the European Doctorate in Law and Economics (EDLE).

The EMLE has been recognized by the European Commission as an Erasmus Mundus Master Programme of "outstanding academic quality". The Erasmus Mundus label allows the EMLE programme to annually grant a substantial number of scholarships (including several full scholarships to non-European students).

On this website, you will find information regarding the participating universities, the annual Midterm Meeting, the application procedure, the fees and the Alumni network.

We cordially invite you to join our international EMLE family!

"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.

Best Wishes,

Zamira Xhaferri"
