Opening of the 20th Edition of the Teixeira de Freitas Program

This Monday (26), the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) began the 20th edition of the Teixeira de Freitas Program, academic-legal exchange of law students from foreign universities, with significant participation of students from MERCOSUR countries and associated countries. In the 2nd edition of 2019, there will be five students from Argentina, Paraguay, Republic of Senegal and the Democratic Republic of Congo, who will get to know the Federal Supreme Court and the Brazilian Judiciary organization closely. Lectures and visits to Justice bodies and the Court are among the activities that exchange students will carry out during the program period. The project will conclude with the Teixeira de Freitas Seminar, in which students will present academic works in Comparative Law, in order to consolidate the acquired knowledge.

By valuing the creation of an academic intraregional dialogue in the legal area, the Program intends to stimulate cooperation between Mercosur countries and associated countries. In addition to promoting mutual understanding of the legal realities of different nations, Teixeira de Freitas aims to foster the development of a line of legal research, as well as to facilitate the creation of a space for reflection on fundamental issues for the legal strengthening of the regional bloc.

The program is the result of a partnership between the STF and the University of Brasilia Foundation, under the coordination of the International Affairs Office.
