The field of law is the complicated yet exciting sector to work. In fact, lawyers provide services that help people and corporates in solving various issues in the legal arena. In Brazil, they are among the most prominent careers. Attorneys are commonly referred to as Advogados. Brazil is among countries with a high number of practicing lawyers in the world. The field is regulated by a national bar association body known as Ordem dos Advogados do Brasil. Regulation, which includes aspects such as advertising, legal fees, and handling of clients is done through a defined Code of Ethics and Discipline. Besides, the association is enshrined in the country’s federal law.
The Brazilian law was heavily influenced by the Portuguese legal system, which is based on statutes. The constitution has also incorporated judicial precedent with the legal system. Brazil is divided into states and federal districts which are responsible for licensing lawyers in their jurisdictions.

In addition to this, one must pass a state bar examination. Lawyers practice under registered firms. International law firms are only allowed to practice in the area of international law.
