More than 5,000 students attend Erasmus School of Law, and the School has around 500 employees. Erasmus School of Law provides bachelor’s degree programmes in Law, Tax Law and Criminology, with education focusing on active academic learning. Students can subsequently choose from 15 master’s degree programmes. For students who have greater ambitions, there is also a Master of Laws – Post-master’s Programme (Dutch: mr.drs.): a double degree programme in law and economics. Upon completion of a master’s degree, the Erasmus School of Law (in collaboration with the Erasmus Academy and others) offers several post-graduate tracks.
The fundamental premise underlying academic research conducted at Erasmus School of Law is that law cannot be considered in splendid isolation or as an end in itself. It is embedded in an economic and social context that shapes law. At the same time, the law itself shapes society and defines economic relationships. In line with this vision, the mission of Erasmus School of Law is to conduct innovative research on the function of law in its economic and social context. Erasmus School of Law research has a strong social and business-driven orientation. Erasmus School of Law is committed to promoting international and interdisciplinary research.
