PhD Programmes

Erasmus Graduate School of Law

EGSL is the Graduate School of Erasmus School of Law. Since the start in September 2012, it assists PhD candidates in the first phase of their appointment in elaborating their doctoral proposal and guide them towards a successful completion of their PhD by the end of the fourth year.

EGSL provides an supportive, international research environment in which critical reflection, a multidisciplinary approach of the various legal disciplines and the exchange of ideas and experience of all ESL researchers play a substantial role. By creating an inspiring and dynamic research- and work environment, where senior and junior researchers meet and learn from each other, EGSL aims to deliver outstanding, socially engaged and inspired academic professionals.

European Doctorate in Law & Economics

Law & Economics today pervades research in all fields of interest. The application of economic thought to legal analysis enables innovative solutions to problems of the law - be it the design of transnational legal relations, organisational statutes for states or corporations, the drafting of single private transactions or enforcement strategies.

The European Doctorate in Law & Economics is one of the largest doctorate programmes in the field. It is a joint doctoral programme by four of the leading European universities: the Universities of Bologna, Haifa, Hamburg and Rotterdam. The stipend-based programme aims at addressing a new class of outstanding PhD researchers from all over the world.
