The EMLE programme not only provides a rare opportunity for students to synthesize and improve upon their knowledge of law and economics, but it also blends academic excellence with a high level of internationality.
In addition, the EMLE structure allows for idea exchange and networking between students and scholars, lawyers, economists and businesspeople.
The programme covers one academic year, and its master level curriculum is not only documented through the use of a constitutive method (economic analysis) on a particular subject (law) but by the fact that this economic analysis is based on a continuous legal comparison.
The functional approach of the economic analysis of law is well suited to compare different solutions to problems, which are in their essence identical. Since differences between national laws have been at the core of European policy making, the EMLE-Mundus Masters Course offers unique value concerning the EU's central ambitions.
"To feel how international and interdisciplinary law can be, to be able to both predict and examine the economic and political effects of legislative as well as judicial decisions and to try out the economical way of thinking to explain people’s behavior in a variety of different situations - that is how EMLE broadened my academic horizon.
However, EMLE taught me maybe even more on a personal level by setting the conditions for wonderful times with wonderful people from various places and backgrounds. I have found good friends who showed me their view of the world, and with whom I am happy to share EMLE travel experiences.
All in all I am fond of this year and of its surely long-lasting influence on my life."
