Application Documents

Please note that all documents listed below must be submitted in English. If your original documents are not in English, they must be accompanied by English translations.

  1. Degree certificates: your degree certificates are the primary means used to judge your previous academic achievements. To facilitate the review process, each student must provide two documents per degree:
    1. A degree certificate stating that the student has successfully completed the listed program and obtained the listed degree, and
    2. An official degree supplement or transcript listing the grades obtained during the program. For programs with elective courses, only subjects that influenced the final degree need to be listed.
      If you have not completed your studies at the time of your application, please attach a full transcript of your grades up to this point.
  2. CV: each applicant should provide an up-to-date CV in English. The CV is used to judge your previous affinity to the study of law & economics and also allows the university to estimate your academic potential.
  3. Letter of motivation: the letter of motivation is the most important indicator of your commitment to and understanding of the study of Law & Economics. In this letter, addressed to the review committee, please explain why you are interested in Law & Economics in general and in the EMLE Program in particular (one page). In addition, write a short essay (maximum of one page) in which you discuss one of the Sustainable Development Goals from a Law & Economics perspective (second page). Please keep both answers in one document of two pages maximum, titled "Letter of motivation".
  4. Letters of recommendation: each student is expected to provide at least one (preferably two) letter(s) of recommendation. These are used as an independent assessment of the student’s academic potential, commitment and work ethic.
  5. Proof of residence: all applicants need to submit a proof of residence for the country they are claiming residence in for the program. Therefore they need to provide a document that contains both their full name and current address.
  6. Payment of the application fee: the application fee is used to cover the costs for the application infrastructure and the staff involved in the application procedure. For this reason applications without full payment of the application fee will not be reviewed and cannot lead to admittance.
  7. Assessment of the applicatiοns.
