More than 4,000 students attend Erasmus School of Law (ESL), and the School has around 400 employees. ESL provides bachelor’s degree programmes in Law, Tax Law and Criminology, with education focusing on active academic learning. Students can subsequently choose from 15 master’s degree programmes. For students who have greater ambitions, there is also a Master of Laws – Post-master’s Programme (Dutch: mr.drs.): a double study programme in economics and law. Upon completion of a master’s degree, the Erasmus School of Law (in collaboration with the Erasmus Academy and others) offers several post-graduate tracks.

The fundamental premise underlying academic research conducted at ESL is that law cannot be considered in splendid isolation or as an end in itself. It is imbedded in an economic and social context that shapes law. At the same time, law itself shapes society and defines economic relationships. In line with this vision, the mission of ESL is to conduct innovative research on the function of law in its economic and social context. ESL research has a strong social and business-driven orientation. ESL is committed to promoting international and interdisciplinary research.
