Europe : European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE)

Europe : European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE)

This programme 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 a Master degree (LL.M. / M.A. / M.Sc.). The programme provides students with an advanced understanding of the economic effects of divergent laws and prepares students for a professional career, for example, in public organisations, in multinational law firms or consultancy firms. Graduates are also well prepared for doctorate research in a PhD programme such as the European Doctorate in Law and Economics (EDLE).
Who Can Apply?
The EMLE is a postgraduate course. Preference will be given to applicants who already have a first master degree.
The minimum requirement for admission is a bachelor degree, provided that this degree leads up to employability in the relevant labour market. In particular with respect to the legal profession, stricter job qualifying criteria (first master degree) may be required by national regulations.
Applicants with a bachelor degree only need to provide proof that this degree is an appropriate level of qualification in the labour market in their home country.
Besides graduates in Law or Economics, students with a first degree in Business Administration or in other social sciences may also apply if the curriculum includes a substantial number of courses in law and/or economics. The above requirement with respect to employability in the labour market equally applies.
No student may apply to more than three Erasmus Mundus courses in any given year.
Application Procedure
The application procedure differs depending on whether an applicant is considered a ‘European student’ or ‘third country student’ in accordance with the criteria of the European Union (the official definition of ‘third country students’ is available at the Erasmus Mundus website). European students are those who either
have a passport of an EU Member State or of the EEA-EFTA states (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway), or
have carried out their main activities (studies, work, etc) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in any of the above countries.
All applicants who are characterized by neither of the above conditions are considered as third country students.
Note that students with multiple nationalities who are citizens of one of the countires listed in the definition, as well as of a non-European country, and who have not spent 12 months in Europe may choose whether they want to apply as European or as third country students.
Please proceed to the application procedure for the academic year 2011/2012:
European students (deadline December 15, 2010 - procedure open soon)
Third country students (deadline November 15, 2010 - procedure open)

Scholarship opportunities for EMLE students
The European Union provides attractive scholarship opportunities for EMLE students through two separate programmes.

First, the Erasmus Mundus Programme offers generous grants to both European and third country students.

Second, European students may also benefit from the Erasmus Mobility Grants.
Furthermore, the fifteen highest ranked admitted non-European applicants who are not nominated for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship will receive a partial waiver of the tuition fee of 4,000 euro.
