Aarhus University, Denmark, PhD Scholarships in International Law and Sustainability

Centre For International Business Law (CIBL)
Department of Business Law
Five PhD Scholarships
Scholarship no.: 544-0145

At the Centre for International Business Law (CIBL) at Department of Business Law at Aarhus School of Business, Aarhus University, 5 PhD scholarships will be available from July 1, 2010, or as soon as possible thereafter. The overall research theme of the scholarships is sustainability and the internationalization of law. Focus is on the initiatives of legal and quasi-legal character that have been launched within the area of sustainability with importance for the business community. This encompasses rules that influence the business community's legal relations with investors, suppliers, other business associates and society in a broad sense. In addition to these matters being regulated on a national level, there is often a regulation on EU-level and from time to time also on UN, OECD and WTO levels. The fact that there are several regulators can mean that companies could be facing particularly encumbering and mutually conflicting demands.

That is why it is very important to focus on the consequences of the internationalization of law in the analysis of how to legally secure sustainability in the best way, and therefore this is expected to be a recurring theme in all PhD projects.

The research theme involves a number of different legal fields, such as contract law, company law, EU-law, environmental law, energy law, climate law, intellectual property law and competition law. The research projects can e.g. revolve around the following areas (see detailed description on:

1. Companies reporting and informing on sustainability (CSR)
2. Sustainable contract relations
3. Sustainability, industrial property rights and transfer of technology
4. Sustainability and PPP/PPC
5. Sustainability, energy and climate

The scholarships are so-called mobility scholarships, which means that applicants with a qualifying exam from Aarhus University cannot apply.

The scientific staff of the Department of Business Law includes 23 researchers of whom 10 are full professors. At the moment there are 13 PhD students at the department.

The PhD scholarship has a duration of three years. Graduates and students expecting to complete their study programme in the near future may apply for the scholarship. The employment is covered by a national collective agreement.

If you have any questions about the fellowship etc., please feel free to contact:
Henrik Scriver, Deputy Head
Tel: +45 8948 6560

Questions about the preparation of the project description may be directed to:
Karsten Engsig Sorensen, Head of Centre
Tel: +45 8948 6335

The following material must be attached:
- Project description (max. 5 pages), including the expected theoretical and methodological approach.
- Graduate diploma (including a list of all grades)
- CV
- Other material, if any (e.g. publications), which should be taken into account in the assessment

Only applications received through the Aarhus University web-based application facility at:

Erasmus Mundus-EMLE Scholarships Scholarships in Law and Economics

Scholarship Introduction:

The European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE) offers a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary studies of law and economics at two or even three European and Non-European universities. Each partner university awards a Master degree (LL.M. / M.A. / M.Sc.). The program provides students with an advanced understanding of the economic effects of divergent laws and prepares students for a professional career, for example, in public organisations, in multinational law firms or consultancy firms. Participating universities: University of Aix-en-Provence, University of Bologna, University of Gent, University of Haifa (Israel), University of Hamburg, Indira Ghandi Institute (Mumbai), Erasmus University of Rotterdam (coordinating institution), University of Vienna, and Warsaw University.

The Erasmus Mundus label allows the EMLE programme to annually grant a substantial number of scholarships (including several full scholarships to non-European students). The Erasmus Mundus Scholarships for non-Europeans aim at strengthening European co-operation and international links in higher education by enabling students and visiting scholars from around the world to engage in postgraduate study at European universities. Each year a number of non-European students will receive a grant of 24,000 € per selected student. Students who want to apply for an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship can indicate this on the application form for third country students. On this form it is asked whether the student is also willing to participate in the EMLE programme if (s)he is not selected for a scholarship. Applicants can apply for a maximum of three Erasmus Mundus courses in the academic year 2011/2012. Applicants who apply to more than three programmes will be excluded from a scholarship! The fifteen highest ranked admitted non-European applicants who are not nominated for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship will receive a partial waiver of the tuition fee of 4,000 euro. The EMLE is a postgraduate course. Preference will be given to applicants who have already a first masters degree. The minimum requirement for admission is a bachelor degree, provided that this degree leads up to employability in the relevant labour market.

EDHEC Eiffel Fellowships and other scholarships

The Eiffel Scholarship run by Egide, a French governmental body, aims at promoting education in France to high potential candidates. Specifically designed for international students with excellent profiles, the EIFFEL Scholarship represents a grant of over a €1000 per month.

In compliance with the procedure set out by Egide, business schools select applications that will be presented to the EIFFEL Selection Committee. Applications will then undergo examination and assessments by the Scientific Technical and Educational Committee of the French Ministry of Education and by a panel of experts in the related field of study.

Every year, hundreds applications are sent to Egide and only few are granted the EIFFEL Scholarship. Only candidates with a GMAT score above 700 and an excellent GPA will be considered.

For the 2012 academic year, complete applications must be sent to EDHEC before December 1st, 2011. Deadlines are expected to be similar in future years.
