Brazil is regarded the country of many lawyers. In 2010, it was rated the third country with the highest number of lawyers in the world.

The law is derived mainly from civil law systems of European countries such as Portugal, Germanic law, and Napoleonic Code. The country has many codified statutes; the supreme law is the current constitution which was created in 1988. Civil code, criminal suit code, consolidation of labor laws, a national tributary code among others are important federal law documents. The country is organized as a federative republic by the constitution. It is formed by several unions of states and municipalities and federal districts. The districts are governed by the principles established in the constitution.
