The study programme in a nutshell

This joint programme covers one academic year and is subdivided into three terms. You will study at renowned universities in an international and stimulating setting. The programme is focused on the economic analysis of law in general, followed by specialized courses in three different tracks you can opt for. These are the Public & International track, the Markets, Corporations & Regulators track and the Innovation & Intellectual Property track. You will finish the academic year by writing a thesis.

The EMLE programme allows students the unique chance to study at least at two different European universities, with the option of attending even a third European or a non-European university. This creates an international framework through the universities, scholars and lecturers, and of course, the students themselves. Within one academic year, students are coming from more than 30 different countries, which creates a global working atmosphere while providing constant opportunities to improve social skills and cultural competences.
