The practice of law in Brazil has come a long way and today is among of the most progressive countries in terms of enacting laws that are meant to protect its citizens and enhance the business environment in the country. Brazil being a federation it means that it has a central government that consists of three branches this are; the judiciary, the executive, and the legislator. It is the work of the judiciary to interpret the laws of the land and effect them as they are. The judiciary consists of lawyers who then go on to be judges and magistrates at different levels within this institution.
For a person to be allowed to practice law legally in the country one has to pass through law school the school has to be recognized by the accrediting body of Brazil that offers the bar exam when one passes he is then allowed to start practicing, and he/she can represent others in court.
