LAW IN BRAZIL
The law of Brazil is originally based mainly on the Portuguese civil law with a legal system based on statutes and is also derived from French Napoleonic Code and Germanic law. A constitutional reform in 2004 introduced a mechanism called 'sumula vinculante', similar to stare decisis.

The Supreme Federal Court, locally known as 'Supremo Tribunal Federal' is the highest court in Brazil.

A Brazilian lawyer licensed to practise law in Brazil is called 'Advogados'. The 'Ordem dos Advogados do Brasil (OAB)' is the bar association that regulates the legal professional in Brazil.
