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 multiple renowned universities (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 internationalise the legal background of the students.
For more information, please visit the EMLE website.
The EMLE is a postgraduate programme. Preference will be given to applicants who already have obtained a master degree. Besides graduates in law or economics, students with a first degree in business administration or in other social sciences may also apply if the completed study programme includes a substantial number of courses in law and/or economics.
Stories from our students
The combination of Law and Economics is fascinating, and has led to us enhancing our academic and professional way of thinking.
Rotterdam, being one of those cities, offers an abundance of culture, bars, great food, friendly people, and a university that provides an awesome atmosphere for its students.
In the EMLE programme, I was able to learn about law from a different perspective.
