European Master in Law and Economics

Master of Laws in Law and Economics (LL.M.)

This joint programme organised by the Erasmus Mundus Law and Economics Consortium covers one academic year and is subdivided into three terms. It 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 an LL.M. degree or an equivalent degree. In order to make law students familiar with basic economic reasoning, some courses are more economic in orientation. Other courses deal with comparative law in order to internationalize the legal background of the students.
