The European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE) has been recognized as an Erasmus Mundus
Masters Course, both under the first edition of Erasmus Mundus
(2004-2008) as under Erasmus Mundus
II (2009-2013). The Programme was very positively evaluated by a panel of independent academic experts and in the first round in 2004 it was chosen by the Selection Committee out of 128 proposals. In this first round only 19 Masters Programmes received the Erasmus Mundus label. The Master in Law and Economics is the only Masters Course in Economics and one of two Erasmus Mundus Courses in the legal discipline. In 2002 the EMLE Programme was already selected to take part in the Joint Masters Project
of the European University Association.
The European Master in Law and Economics is offered by a consortium of seven universities: Erasmus University Rotterdam (co-ordinating institution), University of Hamburg, University of Bologna, University of Gent, University of Aix-Marseille, Victoria University of Manchester and University of Vienna. As of the academic year 2010-2011, the Victoria University of Manchester will no longer participate, but the Warsaw School of Economics, the University of Haifa and the Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research from Mumbai will join the consortium. The students who participate in the EMLE Programme will receive degrees from all the universities where they spend a term. This means that students will receive double or triple degrees, depending on their allocation. All degrees are officially recognized in all countries involved.
The EMLE-Mundus Masters Course is designed to provide students with advanced knowledge in the Economic Analysis of Law: the use of economic methods to explain and assess the effects of divergent legal rules. Since differences between national laws have been at the core of European policy making, the EMLE-Mundus Masters Course offers unique value concerning the EU's central ambitions.
The EMLE application is organized in four easy steps:
- Make sure that you are eligible for the programme and whether you are an EU or a non-EU applicant (non-EU citizens may qualify as EU students depending on their CV)
- Collect necessary application documents and scan / photograph them (these documents must be provided before Dec. 1st 2013)
- Apply on-line and upload the application documents collected
- Collect the admission documents that all successful applicants need to be admitted to the programme (these documents, including the TOEFL, can be provided until June/July 2014)
Make sure to tackle each step as soon as possible. Especially steps 2 & 4 should be at least checked upon early on since several of these documents (language testing, degree verifications) can take several months to collect!
Application Deadline : 1 December 2013
