Terms & Courses
The first and most of the second terms comprise introductory courses as well as core courses on the major topics in the economic analysis of law. In the second term, though, already two specialized courses will be offered, depending on the location chosen (Hamburg, Ghent or Rotterdam). This is due to the new EMLE Track System. Students choose if they would like to earn a specialization in the Public and International Track (Hamburg), the Innovation and IP Track (Ghent) or the Markets, Corporations and Regulators Track (Rotterdam). The choice of the second term University, and therefore the track, leads to a choices of third term Universities to continue the EMLE year and write their EMLE thesis (please see also the general information about the new EMLE Program Structure).
"Having a background in Philosophy and Economics, I was very keen on deepening my knowledge of the legal environment of markets and the way it functions. EMLE was the perfect fit. As a program that employs the analytical and rigorous economic approach while at the same time paying tribute to legal complexities, EMLE is not only interesting and academically challenging but also seeks to develop its students 'practical understanding' of how the economy and legal sphere work. This combined with the instruction of leading scholars in the field and a motivated as well as a gracious international student body rounds out the program perfectly. Overall, this makes me feel well-prepared for my PhD studies in the area of the economics of international law."
