E.M.L.E. Program


George
Hi there,
Is there anybody out there who has participated in the EMLE program offered by different European Universities? Did you have a positive experience in general? I do not really get the program structure, can you choose to go to any university for each of the three terms? Hope to hear from somebody..
Cheers

Hi Russ
Thanks for the link, actually I had already been on some of the university pages but could not find any personal experience student reports so if there is any EMLE alumni out there I would appreciate your comment.

Hey there-

I am trying to figure out if this is a program I would like to do myself for next year. I found some student experience statements on their website under the "student experience" heading.

I also spoke with a professor from Erasmus over the holidays and she seemed to think that you picked a different university each trimester, but after reading the website it seems like you can maybe stay in one of the cities for 2 of the 3 trimesters.

Hi Michael and george
When I did the EMLE program we were able to choose between Rotterdam and Hamburg in the first term and between Gent and Hamburg in the second term. Only for the third term were we given the option to go to any of the 15 participating universities. But I think nowadays you can also go to Bologna during the first and second term.

"The first trimester can be spent in Hamburg (Germany), Rotterdam (Netherlands), or Bologna (Italy); the second trimester in Hamburg, Ghent (Belgium) or Bologna (Italy); the third trimester in either Aix-en-Provence (France), Haifa (Israel), Hamburg, Linkoeping / Stockholm (Sweden), Madrid (Spain), Manchester (Great Britain), Rotterdam (Netherlands) or Vienna (Austria)"
At least this is what they say on LLMGUIDE..

Hello everyone,

I am also interested in the EMLE Program, but am wondering whether I have any chances to get admitted.. Does anyone of you know how tough the selection process is? My concern is my lack of a law degree. I have a BBA (with some economics) and am currently taking a masters course in finance. Any comments?

Hi Silja, The EMLE Program is open for lawyers and economist, so if you are an economist you should not worry.

Besides graduates in Law or Economics, also applicants with a first degree in business administration or in social sciences may apply under the condition that the completed study programme includes a substantial number of courses in law and/or economics. The above requirement with respect to employability in the labour market equally applies.
Students who have not yet graduated but expect to graduate before July of the year of application can also apply for admission to the EMLE programme. If such a student is selected for the programme, this is under the deferring condition that (s)he sends a copy of the diploma ultimately mid-July.

Hey,

Anyone out there starting the EMLE program in fall 2005?
I got an offer, but am still fudging.. My first choices of the locations were Bologna, Hamburg and Madrid. Is it really worth paying 7500 Euros? Any opinions?

Hi i've been accepted for the fall 05, I graduated in bologna and i can tell you that as law school it's one of the best in italy, maybe the first among the state universities. Besides the town has a great cultural life and u'll surely have fun there. From the other side don't ask me if the EMLE it's worth the cost, because i'm trying to discover it myself!

Hi,
I've got a doubt about the EMLE and I'd like anyone to post a comment.
The EMLE is open to bachelors too, I already got a master degree in law, i wanted to take an llm or a master in law and economics to redirect my skills toward economics, to better my deutsch (i've chosen hamburg as 1st destination) and to give some "international" appeal to my curriculum vitae. therefore i thought that EMLE was a good opportunity, but actually i fear it will appear a weird choice, somehow as studying twice for getting a level I already own...
any comment?
any info about the ranking or the utility?
bye!

Hi solsaul,
I did the EMLE in 2001/2002 and I had similar ideas about the program the program as you have. The thing is that the program is not so much a program with 50% law and 50% economics unlike one might think. The discipline of "Law and Economics" essentially deals with the question how legal questions could be solved applying economic principles rather than legal ones (efficiency, transaction costs). So basically it is a subdiscipline of law.
When I did the program there was only one lecture on economics (Microeconomics) all the other courses dealt with the economic analysis of different fields of law. So, if you are looking for a master program on economics I would rather consider an MBA, especially since you already have a master degree in law.
That being said, I have to say that I enjoyed the program very much. Students get to study in 3 different countries in just 1 year which is a lot of fun and if you know what is expecting you the program content is quite interesting as well.
Hope that helps,
J

Hi Solsaul,

As you already have a master degree in law, I don't think the best way to expand your horizons towards economics is by taking the EMLE course. On the other hand, as you said you would like to develop skills in the field of economics, you would probably find most of the MBA courses rather insufficient. I personally think that an MSc Economics is the only way to really develop a relevant tool-box for mastering the techniques used in the field of economics. An MBA only takes a general management approach with a little bit of everything (accounting, marketing etc.), and in my opinion is generally highly overvalued. Those are the kind of basic concepts every business student learns during the first year of an undergraduate degree. A highly scientific MSc Economics course is obviously more demanding but also more rewarding. Neither EMLE nor an MBA would provide critical appreciation of both the theory and practice of economics in the same depth.

hi!
julius and silja, thanks a lot for your comments. you look rather informed about the topic and, as i'm a bit confused and i can't find such a great help at my uni maybe i can ask you and anybody else a further comment.
I was aware about the topic of law and economics, i mean i knew what it was about. I thought that it could be useful in order to be taken by the legal office or in the risk management staff of a corp..
On more even though i speak english (toefl cbt 283) and deutsch I've never been to study albroad and i fear this will be an handicap for me.
My degree is a master degree, i mean that is higher than a bachelor. In italy with the bachelor grade you're not admitted to the bar, you need to take the full 4/5 years course, that's what i have.
my fear is that the EMLE is good for bachelors, but not for upper graduates, and it seems to me that you see it this way (is it so?).
This given, as this program could allow me to study in more than one uni do you think i would be such a great idiot to do it?
just In case, is there something that i don't get about llm and master? should they be taken only by the bachelors? Some of them request to be already admitted at the bar (they're the hardest ones, as the one in frankfurt) and they scare me a bit, but at least they seem to be a good way to an international firm.
Any info about the utrecht llm? it's one of the few ones for wich the application deadline is not already passed, and it looks very good.
thanks again.

ah... for he who has asked about the choice of the applicants for the fall 05 of EMLE ...the deadline for applications has expired and the choice has already been made, but if you've made it on time you should wait for someone of the chosen ones to retire and free some place.
