What does this study entail?
This joint programme covers one academic year and is subdivided into three terms. It offers a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary studies of law and economics at multiple renowned European and non-European universities. Each graduate gets awarded a joint LL.M. degree. Additionally, partner universities not part of the joint degree will award a national LL.M. or an equivalent degree, e.g. MA, MSc. to students attending an EMLE term there. 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.

Is this the right programme for you?
The EMLE is a postgraduate programme, so students are selected if they have at least 240 ECTS (four years) of prior education before July of the same year the programme starts. Preference will be given to applicants who already have obtained a Master’s degree. Besides graduates in law or economics, students with a first degree in business administration or in other social sciences may also apply. This is under the condition that the completed study programme includes a substantial number of courses in law and/or economics, and/or the student convincingly shows their motivation to study the economic analysis of law. Besides that, this programme is taught in English, so students should be able to provide a proof of English proficiency.
