In Hamburg, EDLE is offered by the Institute of Law and Economics (ILE). The ILE is part of the Faculty of Law at the University of Hamburg. The large faculty, consisting of researchers with a legal or economic background, offers a wide range of research topics in nearly all fields of interest. In the second semester the EDLE students participate in the Summer School. The Annual Hamburg Summer School in Law & Economics features an intense six week course programme with international scholars from leading faculties.
The University of Hamburg branch of the EDLE is supported by the IPID-programme of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
