One should not deny that there are studies on Brazilian law already available in foreign languages. Such efforts are, however, mainly isolated initiatives. Law sectors with traditional external interest, such as business law and investment’s regulation, naturally receive attention of foreign researchers and concentrate the most publications about Brazilian law in other languages.
Portuguese constitutes also a natural barrier to put forward Brazilian law abroad. A legal journal entirely released in foreign languages is intended to contribute to break this barrier stimulating academic research focused on international researchers and scholars.
It has been noted that the lack of updated material on Brazilian legislation in idioms other than Portuguese constitutes an obstacle for interested scholars or potential investors.
At the same time, it is always desirable to increase the integration of Brazilian Law Academy in the international scenario, thus facilitating the access of foreigners to take knowledge and participate in the discussions in Brazilian legal arena.
