Exchange Program (intership) – Brazilian Supreme Court – Law students

We would like to inform you about the Exchange Program in the Law area between the Universities partners of University of Brasilia and Supreme Courts of Mercosur.

This academic-legal program began in 2009 and it is an initiative that allows participants to learn about the Brazilian legal system, paying special attention to the administration of justice at the federal level.

The exchange takes place within the framework of Teixeira de Freitas Program, with the aim of stimulating academic cooperation through regional dialogue in the Mercosur countries. They can apply for undergraduate students in Law from Bloco Universities and also from other countries.

In addition to taking courses at the Faculty of Law of the University of Brasília-UnB during a semester, the selected students complete a two-month internship at Brazilian Supreme Federal Court – STF. The activities carried out are diversified, both in STF and in the other Brazilian justice bodies. Students will attent plenary sessions of the STF, visit relevant institutions for Brazilian Justice and perform internships in specific areas of the Tribunal, including in the Cabinet of Ministers, whenever possible.

During the internship, students can summarize the most important decisions of the Court, participate in debates about legal institutes in comparison with the other participating countries and carry out other daily activities of the Court. The Program also includes a research project in Comparative Law, which will be developed in STF in conjunction with the studies at UnB.

The Program also welcomes graduate students and teachers for technical visits and short investigations for a period of one to two weeks. For this type of visit, the applicant must submit a work plan to be developed and can choose the date of the short internship.
