Total Course Hours: 72
Second Semester Course
SUMMARY
Criminal law; Historical evolution; Schools of thought; Sources of criminal law; Constitutional principles of criminal law; Enforcement of criminal law. (Articles 1 to 12). Criminal Execution (Articles 12 to 25) and Criminal (Articles 29 to 31);
Criminal responsibility of corporations.
COURSE OBJECTIVES
Criminal law is presented as a study of the structure and anatomy of categories  of crimes, looking at, above all, the educational aspects and fundamentals underlying the rules, with examples in case law.
Although the Special Part (Parte Especial) of Brazilian Criminal Code and the Special Criminal Statutory Law (Legislação Penal Especial) preceded the creation of the General Part (Parte Geral), which for so long represented the content of Criminal law, it is undeniable that the General Part is applicable to all crimes provided by the Special Part of the Code and further statutes, which contain the main provisions addressing each crime in particular cases.
Therefore, a detailed examination is made of the General Part, which will establish a connection between the General Part and the typical features of the law. Preparation of students for civil-service exams (Judgeship, Public Ministry, State Attorney’s Office, etc.) is provided, as well as for those who intend to practice law, either as independent lawyers or as a member of an organization.
One should also note that, in preparation for the bar exams, roughly 60% of candidates in the second phase of the process opt for criminal law. Certainly, faced with the enormous number of features incorporated in Brazilian criminal law statutes - more than 1,000 types of judgments (see under the title, "Caos Normativo - Penal", from Luiz Flavio Gomes, April 2001, www.direitocriminal.com.br), there is a need to prioritize the study of certain features, especially those most prevalent in law.

Fourth Semester Course
SUMMARY
The subject, Constitutional Law II, could otherwise be named "Basic Human Rights". In fact, its content is related to the classic issue of inherently human versus historically confirmed rights, which are, in any case, essential for the dignity of all individuals and social groups.  Since they are conferred rights – whether by governments in constitutions or by doctrine or jurisprudence – they are of such importance that if not upheld under all circumstances, their absence would threaten or even destroy the foundation of current legal order.
COURSE OBJECTIVES
The subject, Constitutional Law II, is designed to give a clear, precise idea of basic rights provided for in Brazil's Federal Constitution; tools are provided to interpret constitutional provisions, which are correlated with other legal disciplines. Resources from constitutional doctrine, jurisprudence and legislative exegesis are examined and applied. In the previous semester, the basic principles of General Theory of Constitutional Law and Brazilian Positivist Constitutional Law and Constitutional Law II were presented, as well as introductory approaches designed for positivist law and the evolution of Brazilian constitutions with regard to basic rights, whose examination is always recommended. This course will focus on individual and collective rights and responsibilities, social rights, rights of nationality, political rights, the doctrine of human rights, guarantees of basic rights, government defense and democratic institutions in the international system for the protection of human rights.

SUMMARY
This subject is a continuation of studies in Criminal law, focused on the Special Part of the Criminal Code, through an analysis of prevailing doctrine and jurisprudence.
COURSE OBJECTIVES
It is not our intention to present novelties to the detriment of important ideas to undergraduate students, but rather to approach the study of Criminal law in such a way as to facilitate the understanding of the structure and anatomy of procedures, looking at, above all, the educational aspect and explaining the why of each statement or conclusion, enriching them with examples.
Although the Parte Especial (Special Part) and the Legislação Criminal Especial (Special Penal Legislation) preceded the creation of the Parte Geral (General Part), which represented for so long the content of Criminal law, it is irrefutable that today the General Part is applicable to all crimes contained in the Special Part and Legislação Especial (Special Legislation), which contain the precepts that address each crime in particular. Therefore, there is value in teaching the principles of the General Part, a detailed examination which over the period of the course will establish a connection between the General Part and the typical features of the law.
Care is also taken to prepare students for civil-service exams (Judgeship, Public Ministry, State Attorney’s Office, etc.), as well as for those who intend to practice law, as an independent lawyer or as a member of an organization.
One should also not lose sight of the fact that, in preparation for the bar exam, roughly 60% of candidates in the second phase of the process opt for Criminal law.

Certainly, faced with the enormous number of features ingrained in Brazilian Criminal Legislation -more than 1000 types of judgments (under the title, "Caos Normativo - Penal" (Normative Criminal Chaos), Luiz Flavio Gomes, April 2001, www.direitocriminal.com.br), there is a need to prioritize the study of certain features, especially those most prevalent in legal issues.

SUMMARY
The legislation, doctrine and jurisprudence regarding the organization and operation of the labor courts is studied as well as the categories of labor legal procedure.
COURSE OBJECTIVES
Procedural law presents the rules for access to the judiciary in its guardianship, prevention and correction of the rights of citizens. Because of this aim, these procedural rules present peculiar traits, giving rise to the existence of diverse procedural systems: Criminal, civil and labor. A labor contract, a very specific type of legal compromise, unites specific traits and its own system of balances. These aspects also demand their own specific procedures to resolve labor disputes. This instrument, labor procedural law, although similar to civil procedural law comprises its own rules and independent institutions. The study of labor procedural law is designed to give the student knowledge of the structure and system in which the procedural rules address individual or collective labor disputes. The course has a number of specific objectives: to introduce many types of solutions for labor disputes; to describe the organization and operation of the Labor Courts; to present the principals and the institutions of labor procedural law; to equip the student for the labor procedural system and its legal procedures, such as hearings, evidence collection, examinations, collective bargaining agreements, conciliation and performance; to present the peculiarities of the system of appeals in labor courts; to present the principles and mechanisms of labor procedural law.

CONSUMER PROTECTION LAW Catalog Code: 8PV971
Total Course Hours: 36
Ninth Semester Course
SUMMARY
A study of the evolution of consumer rights in Brazil, a country with uneven economic development.
A presentation of innovations and procedures from the Consumer Protection Code.
COURSE OBJECTIVES
In Brazil, consumers have been in need of specific protection for some time; these rights were abused by merchants and suppliers because of the difficulty in securing consumer rights.
Regulation of consumer rights arrived later in our country than in other countries since the Brazilian government controlled many economic activities. The Brazilian government even competed with private initiative in the private sector.
The approval of the Consumer Protection Code in Brazil was fundamental in curbing these abuses, since consumers, who were poorly treated before, now had the means by which to secure their rights.
Before the Consumer Protection Code came into force, the Civil Procedural Code only protected individuals that had suffered harm from other individuals or businesses. The Federal Constitution of 1988 considered consumer protection the duty of the government. This provided the means for protective regulation.
If this material was associated with Positivist Law (Civil Law, Procedural, Business and Criminal) in the past, it today presents the necessary basis for doctrinal and scientific independence, uniting principles and guidelines that are specific to it. This subject therefore requires special attention as it clarifies the rights of citizens as consumers with respect to the responsibility of suppliers, similar to links in a giant chain of consumption.
The study of consumer rights, after more than 10 years of the Consumer Protection Code, is fundamental to the understanding of a subject that is so important and relevant in the lives of all citizens.
