Program presentation
EMLE is forging a path in producing future lawyers and economists equipped with an interdisciplinary background ready to handle the multidimensional challenges of European and international business and law.

Master goals
EMLE provides an experience lauded as “an outstanding educational concept” which synthesizes law and economics together into a programme that is both manageable in its structure and innovative in its design.

This programme creates an atmosphere of internationality through its students and its universities, which provides both a learning experience for its scholars and a desirable trait for future employers.

The combination of law and economics fosters an atmosphere of idea sharing and introduces different techniques for examining and handling problems.

Students that went to any of these three EMLE partners will receive a Joint Degree (LL.M. “European Master in Law and Econmics’) in addition to an official degree from any of the other universities they have spent at least one term at. All of these degrees will bear the Erasmus Mundus:Erasmus+ label and are officially recognized in all countries involved. This means that students will receive at least one Joint Degree and probably also an additional degree from the EMLE program, depending on their allocation.
