Erasmus School of Law has over 5000 students and approximately 500 staff members. Erasmus School of Law offers Bachelor's degrees in Law, Tax Law and Criminology, with the emphasis on active academic learning. For students who want more, there is the mr.drs. program, the double study of law and economics. After the master's degree Erasmus School of Law provides postgraduate education (in cooperation with Erasmus Academy and others).
Erasmus School of Law's basic premise is that law cannot be considered in complete isolation or as an end in itself. It is embedded in an economic and social context that helps shape law. At the same time, law influences society and defines economic relationships. In line with this vision, the mission of Erasmus School of Law is to conduct innovative research into the function of law in its economic and social context, and to have a strong link between research and teaching. In both research and teaching, Erasmus School of Law considers internationalization and multidisciplinary research a matter of course.
