Exchange Programs

Teixeira de Freitas legal and academic exchange program within Mercosur and Associate States 

The Teixeira de Freitas Exchange Program encourages cooperation towards the creation of a regional legal and cultural dialogue between the countries of Mercosur and Associates. 

Its intention is to build and expand a common understanding to help strengthen the economic integration efforts and to promote training of teaching staff and students, as well as to stimulate the development of research and extension in the legal field within Mercosur and associate States.

Cooperation in the academic level is intended to promote mutual understanding of the legal realities of Mercosur countries and to support the development of legal research and to facilitate the creation of a space for reflection on issues which are central to the strengthening of the regional legal sphere.

To this end, the mobility of undergraduate and postgraduate students, teachers and researchers in the field of law among countries in the region becomes reality through the Teixeira de Freitas Exchange Program, which usually provides eight openings for students from MERCOSUR countries a semester, for the academic period of August 15 until December 2. In addition to attending morning courses in law school at the University of Brasilia - UnB, exchange students follow an internship in the Supreme Court in the afternoon.
