European Master in Law and Economics, LL.M.

  • Application Deadline
  • 12 months
  • English (book IELTS)


This joint programme organised by the Erasmus Mundus Law and Economics Consortium covers one academic year and is subdivided into three terms.

It 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 an LL.M. degree or an equivalent degree. In order to make law students familiar with basic economic reasoning, some courses are more economic in orientation. Other courses deal with comparative law in order to internationalize the legal background of the students.

    The European Commission's Erasmus+ Programme enables us to select highly qualified non-European students for a scholarship. Students can (but do not have to) spend their third term in one of our non-European partner universities, although for non-European students, this cannot be a university in their own country.

    The aim of the scholarships is to strengthen European co-operation and international links in higher education by enabling students and visiting scholars from around the world to engage in postgraduate study at European universities, as well as by encouraging the outgoing mobility of students and scholars towards third countries.

    Please note that applicants can apply for a maximum of three Erasmus+ courses per academic year! Applicants who apply to more than three programmes will be excluded from a scholarship!

    StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
