European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE)

This European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE) 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. or a Joint Degree). 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 organizations, in multinational law firms or consultancy firms. Graduates are also well prepared for doctorate research in a Ph.D. programme such as the European Doctorate in Law and Economics (EDLE). The EMLE has been recognized by the European Commission as an Erasmus + Programme of "outstanding academic quality". The Erasmus + label allows the EMLE programme to annually grant a substantial number of scholarships (including several full scholarships to students from “Partner Countries”). For law students, the knowledge of the specific regulations of their home country is too narrow a base for counseling firms that are active in international trade. Additionally, a familiarity with the economic effects of legal rules has become indispensable for understanding their clients' commercial needs. Similarly, economics students will profit from an accurate understanding of the institutional legal framework of market economies. For both lawyers and economists, knowledge of the other discipline and international contacts are crucial for a successful future career. The EMLE programme is the institutional response to these challenges.... [-]

LLM

The premise of our approach to graduate legal education is that no matter whatever their level of exposure to law, our graduates will practice in a global environment. We have designed the curriculum to sensitize our graduate students to the normative and professional challenges globalization entails and to equip them with the relevant tools to enable them to approach the law in a more encompassing, universally-aware manner. Students benefit from an unmatched selection of course content, seminars, practical experiences and opportunities to engage in intellectual projects at the highest level.

At present, we are offering an LL.M. degree with a specialization in Human Rights Law. In future, we propose to provide LL.M. degree in areas like Corporate Law; Intellectual Property Rights Law, Environmental Law; etc. Keeping in view the interest of the legal academia, besides regular course curriculum, we lay a great emphasis on equipping the students with innovative teaching skills which would ultimately pave the way to become excellent teachers. In addition, the programme is beneficial to those who want to expand their legal understanding and secure strategic decision making roles in major NGOs as well as Human Rights lawyering.... [-]
