Welcome to EMLE - The European Master in Law and Economics programme!
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!
"The EMLE year was un unforgettable experience. Academically, it expanded my understanding of law and economics by offering a unique aproach to a broad range of legal issues using economic reasoning and public policy analysis. Personally, the privilege of earning a master's degree in different countries with a diverse group of students provided an interesting cultural opportunity to widen our horizons about the world."
