DOI: 10.17803/2313-5395.2017.1.7.064-070

Author: André Ramos Tavares

Rubric: LEGAL PROFESSION ABROAD

Annotation: Brazil has a challenging background with codifications. There is a culture of overacting by the lawmaker, with many laws becoming diverse, unique and contradictory. The author addresses the historical emergence of national laws in Latin America until the new Civil Procedural Code was passed in Brazil. The author begins with a conceptual reflection upon the updating of the “codifications” movement in the World.
