The European Master in Law & Economics, also known as EMLE, is an Erasmus Mundus post-graduate Master's degree offered by a consortium of nine universities: Erasmus University Rotterdam (co-ordinating institution), University of Hamburg, University of Bologna, University of Ghent, University of Aix-Marseille, University of Vienna, University of Haifa, Warsaw School of Economics and the Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research. Furthermore, the EMLE maintains a link with the University of California, Berkeley which allows some students to serve as visiting scholars in residence there. Students who participate in the EMLE Program usually divide their time between two or three of the participating Universities and, depending on their allocations, can receive multiple-degrees from each institution where they have undertaken studies. The partner universities variously award LL.M., M.Sc. or M.A. degrees. The language of instruction is English, but the master thesis can also be written in another European language.
