The master level of the programme is documented through the use of a constitutive method (economic analysis) on a particular subject (law) combined with the fact that this economic analysis is based on a continuous legal comparison.
The programme duration lasts for one academic year with three terms; the first and second terms comprise introductory courses as well as core courses on the major topics in the economic analysis of law, while in the third term, students take specialized courses and write their master thesis.
The programme is led by the EMLE Board of Directors, which supervises the management and handles decision-making on key matters.
Details about the internal organization of the programme (programme coordination, duties of the consortium universities, academic goals at. al.) can be found in the EMLE Consortium Agreement. Please note that the annexes attached to the agreement may have changed since ratification.
"For me, the EMLE programme was a superb experience. The academic standards were rigorous and the quality of the student cohort was excellent. Having previously studied at two top English Universities, I have no doubt that that the teaching I received at: Rotterdam, Aix-Marseilles and UC Berkeley; was of an equally world-class standard.
Law graduates (like myself) will benefit from studying Law and Economics. The economic perspective brings a wealth of new ideas to the table. I have found these invaluable as I now proceed through my training in London as an environmental and public-law Barrister."
