Texeira de Freitas Exchange Program - 1st 2014 edition

The Texeira de Freitas exchange program is a judicial and cultural incentive to strengthen foreign students’ learning in their professional and personal development. It is important to highlight that the objective of this Exchange Program is to improve the knowledge of comparative law of the member and associated states of Mercosur. Internship activities are composed of visits to various bodies of the Brazilian Judiciary, internal visits to STF’s sessions, case law research on Mercosur’s Supreme Courts, internship on STF’s Justice’s Offices and elaboration of comparative law research which is presented on the Program’s closing seminar.

On June 27, the seminar presentation and research results accomplished by the exchange students ended the 2014 first edition of the Teixeira de Freitas Program in a satisfactory manner.

The following subjects were presented:

“System of judicial review and its main differences” was the seminar subject of exchange student Luis Moya Carreño, representative of Chile and law student. He aimed to present the main processes of the Brazilian and Chilean systems of judicial review, comparing each other and showing the main differences of both countries’ judicial systems. Based on the conclusions of the presented research, the exchange participant analyzed Chile’s judicial system as a very different one than the Brazilian system, having few processes and being relatively newer.

The Chilean exchange and law student, Valentina Decarli, researched on the right of public servants’ strike in Chile and Brazil. The student presented a comparison of the labor judicial systems, its differences and similarities, the validity that each country bestows Agreements and International Treaties and, above all, identified the gaps that motivated servants to begin a strike.

Law student Javiera Pizarro, also from Chile, amid her concerns and curiosities, decided to speak on the Ficha Limpa Law and how the legitimacy and good representation of a candidate to be elected to public position are overseen. She highlighted the nonexistence of that general law in Chile by informing that for each position there are specific laws of ineligibility.

Finally, student Luz Flores, from Argentina, presented her research on the importance of the right to access public information in Brazil and in Argentina. Thus, that subject was analyzed in two cases that reflect the progressive integration: the ADI 2198 case in Brazil, and the CIPPEC case in Argentina. Luz Flores concluded her seminar based upon the importance of making the state’s activity public, constituting an important element of awareness.
