Brazil is known to be a country of lawyers, this is because of the number of law schools established in the country. According to records established in 2010, Brazil was named among the third county in the world with the largest number of lawyers, the second one being the United States and the first one was India. On the contrary, Brazilians do not love law and not all they want to be lawyers, but because of the number of law schools in the country after high School students have to go to pursue law as a professional. It is estimated that the number of law schools in Brazil is many as compared to the number of law schools in the world all combined.
With the numerous lawyers and the legal institutions in the country does not mean that Brazil has the best lawyers in the world. The quality of their lawyers is not up to standard. The Brazilian Bar examination has only registered 800000 lawyers.

It is evident that there are too many law courses in the country which are not recommended and are not the best.
