Large part of Brazilian law is derived from the civil law of some European nations, especially Portugal and Germany. The Federal Constitution of Brazil is the supreme law, which was created in October 21, 1988. Brazil has 26 federate states, which adopt their own laws and Constitutions. Each state in the country has a law school. A law course is viewed by many as a prestigious and promising career in Brazil. It takes a period of five years for a student to graduate from a law school. The graduates acquire necessary skills and knowledge to enable them to pursue a variety of professions related to legal industry, but they must first pass the Bar Association of Brazil exam.
In 2004, there was an amendment to the Brazilian Constitution which recognized past court rulings as precedents in current or future court decision, as applied in common law jurisdiction. Brazil is one of the countries with largest number of legal professionals all over the world. Sao Paolo leads in country, followed by Rio de Janeiro.
