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!

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!
"Dear Prospective EMLE Students, Dear Professors,
I am very happy for being an EMLE student and in particular having had the chance to study in two renowned universities, respectively ILE/Hamburg University-Germany and RILE, Eramus University Rotterdam.
Being a non EU student, I was eligible and lucky to be granted the Eramus Mundus Merit Scholarship from the European Commission for Education and Science.
This programme has enabled me to make use of economic methods to explain the efficiency of laws. I was impressed from the high profile of lecturers and their devotion to this school of thought. EMLE Programme is not like a usual LL.M. programme - it goes beyond by providing new insights and approaches.
Furthermore, the EMLE programme helped me to build up precious friendship with young people coming all over the continents! I miss my EMLE friends.
Last but not least, My special thanks and gratitude go to Prof. Dr. Thomas Eger for his patience, very high teaching performance and kindness.
[EMLE Student 2008/2009]
