EMLE - Application for 2014/2015


Hi everyone,

Does anyone apply for EMLE this year? Im working on my application and have a problem with the ECTS Confirmation. I graduated from the law school in Vietnam and they do not use ECTS here so if anyone has experience of transferring credits to ECTS as required in the equivalency form, please help.

Many thanks.

Hi!
I'm preparing my application too!
But my "problem" is about how to apply (as EU or non-EU), cause I've double citizen.
I'm considering to apply as non-EU because I did my degrees (a bachelor of Economics and a bachelor of Laws outside Europe) outside Europe...
But I'm really in doubt!
May somebody help me?
What about concurrence?

Best regards

Hello, I will apply for 2014-15. I am a bit confused about Letter of Motivation. EMLE wants a letter of motivation to highlight the following:

" The letter of motivation is our most important indicator towards your commitment to and understanding of the study of law & economics. As such it contributes 25% to your total score.
In this letter (maximum of two pages), addressed to the review committee, please explain why you are interested in Law & Economics in general and in the EMLE Programme in particular."

Will it be a good idea to include glimpses/events of personal life or should I confine my letter only to my professional inclination towards pursuing EMLE ?

Please suggest.

Well, I searched for many definitions/samples of motivation letter in the Internet and basically, they said if there're no specific instructions from the school, we may combine the Statement of Purpose and the Letter of Motivation into one. But here they notice that we should express our interest in the program so I think you should focus on that point, maybe try to say sth about your personal events/achievements as the motivation for your study.

Hope this help.

I know that the fees are different, but what about concurrence?

I think you'd better ask the school via their email applications2013@emle.org. I did send some emails and the replies came quite fast.

Hi thaithanh89

Are you also applying for 2014-15 or you are a current student ?

I am also thinking of combining both letter of motivation and statement of purpose into one. Maybe I will stress more on my professional motivation and drop in a bit of personal events.

I am applying for the school year 2014-2015 too. Reference Letter has a section for your professor to talk about your experience toward the study of economics of law. I think you may want him to focus on it.

I really really want to join this program but they take only 105 students from EU and non EU. Gosh, it's really a battle :)

@ thaithanh89,

Thanks for the guidance. Fingers crossed. I will give recommendation letters from employer. I passed law school almost 6 years ago.

One more thing.

Regarding the reference letter, should I request my employer to upload a scanned copy of the recommendation letter ? Else, how will he put his signatures and company seal in the relevant column ?

I am from Vietnam and graduated the law school for 2 years.

I understand that the referees will print out the letter after they complete it to sign and seal (if any) then make a scanned copy and send to the school.

I dont know how they send it because the system automatically send an email to referees to instruct them after I registered the name of referee.

The EMLE confidential reference form requires the referee to provide his signatures on the reference form after filing it. I wanted to clarify that whether the referee is required to upload a scanned copy or the form is required to be sent through postal services.

I have sent an email to EMLE but they have not replied yet.

EMLE website says - "Recommendation letters can (and should) be requested electronically during the online application process using the reviewers email address!
If the reviewer is unwilling to provide an electronic review or you wish to use an older letter of recommendation, physical copies can be sent to the office addresses listed below. "

I think the deadline is 1 Dec 2013. Is it possible to submit a regular recommendation letter (i mean not in the form). Thanks!

I dont think it is possible as they do not mention about any exceptional case where a regular reference letter is accepted. You'd better follow the rules :)

Hi, if the referee is not capable to upload the scanned copy of the Reference Letter. A hard copy of the signed letter can be sent to the school by post. That's what i understand from the instruction in EMLE website :)
Hope it'll help.
