The Brazilian Bar Association is the body that regulated the law profession in Brazil. It is the one which grants lawyers the permission to practice law. Without their certificate, it is illegal to represent or to purport to represent lawyers. The body has set out the basic regulations that qualify one as a lawyer in Brazil. For those studying in the country, it requires 5 years of an undergraduate program, and time at law school. At the end of the tenure at the law school, one must sit and pass an exam conducted by the Brazilian bar association. Only those who pass are allowed to go ahead and start representing clients or practice law. After completing the law schools, students of law are recommended to join a law firm from where they can get real firsthand experience in representing clients.
For foreign lawyers, there are different regulations that are applied. Foreign law firms in Brazil are allowed to practice as long as there is a partnership with a registered law firm already operating in Brazil.
