The EMLE-programme is a research-oriented master programme. The master level is documented by both the use of a constitutive method (economic analysis) on a particular subject (law) and the fact that this economic analysis is based on a continuous legal comparison. The functional approach of the economic analysis of law is well suited to compare different solutions to problems, which are in their essence identical.
This approach demands much from the students, because they have three different elements (economic analysis, law and comparative law) combined with each other. The literature used in the lectures is always up to date. Some lectures are based so close to the current research that textbooks are not yet available (e.g. “Public Law and Economics II”, which deals with the economic consequences of employed constitutional regulations).
