The Brazilian legal system is one of the trickiest to navigate. For this reason, becoming a lawyer is relatively popular in Brazil. All laws trace their roots to the Brazilian constitution which only came into existence in 1988. Many people are still learning the ins and outs of the system since the constitution has been in place for just three decades. A lawyer will take either five or six years training to be a lawyer before sitting the Brazilian Bar Exam. Upon passing this exam, a lawyer will get licensed and get admission to the bar.
There are some major law firms in Brazil with as many as 500 practicing lawyers and cover a variety of cases. Law firms that specialize in one area usually have few lawyers. At the law firm, a lawyer will get on board as a partner, an associate or an intern. Since clients pay an hourly fee, partners get the highest reward with remuneration depending on the amount of business brought to the firm. Associates earn a salary. To get the lawyer of your choice, make sure to do thorough research and also consider references from friends and previous clients.
