Application for the Academic Year 2018/2019
Dear prospective applicant,
The EMLE application is open for the Academic Year 2018-2019. The opening was slightly delayed this year, as we are busy with some important improvements for the next student intake: as of 2018-2019, the EMLE Programme will introduce the possibility of specializations in three EMLE tracks: 1) the Public and International Track, 2) the Innovation and Intellectual Property (IP) Track, and 3) the Markets, Corporations & Regulators (MCR) Track.
Also, our long-standing third term partner, the University of Haifa, will move to the first term EMLE education, in order to teach the foundations of Law and Economy education, next to the Universities of Hamburg and Rotterdam.
In the third term, we are happy to announce two important new EMLE partner Universities: the University Pompeu Fabra (UPF, Barcelona, Spain) and LUMSA (Rome, Italy). Please find an overview of the new EMLE structure, course descriptions and the general description of the new EMLE track system following the links.
We are looking forward to your applications for the EMLE Academic Year 2018-2019!

EMLE's real impact on policymaking:
EMLE's real impact on policymaking:
EMLE alumni have contributed to a project by the European Commission, which had a tangible impact on EU policymaking.
On 21 December 2015, the Financial Times published the article "Brussels to crack down on cross-border postal prices”, describing how parcel delivery prices are inconsistent across EU borders and restrain trade in the internal market. A group of EMLE alumni, acting as consultants for the European Commission, have contributed to the dataset on which these findings are based.
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 (equivalent to 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+: 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).
Moreover the highest ranked admitted non-European applicants (without an Erasmus+ scholarship) will be offered a partial waiver This also applies to a substantial number of European applicants. Erasmus+ Mobility Grants are available to eligible European and non-European EMLE students to offset the additional costs of mobility.
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!
"My dear EMLE professors,
I'm writing you because I just came back home and I would like to say "thank you" for being part of the best experience of my life.
EMLE allowed me learn ideas that I had never thought before and made my brain touch its limits more than once, enhancing my knowledge each time.
Undoubtedly, you gave plenty of tools that I have to apply now in the case of my country to improve its development and the life of its people.
My best wishes,
(Mexico) [EMLE Student 2008/2009]
