Brazil has a record of a high number of lawyers. It is actually the third highest in the world in the number of lawyers graduating from law schools. India and USA lead, with India on top of the list.
Does this mean that everyone in Brazil wants to pursue law as a career?
Well, not really.
The problem originates from the fact that there are many Law schools in country. This, however, does not answer to the million of cases that are left unattended to in the country’s judiciary. The country’s inhabitants complain that cases being delayed year after year, not only the complicated ones but the simple ones as well.
Whereas many complain of the incompetency of law firms in Brazil, one lawyer stands out from the rest. Richard Tosto de Oliveira.
Who is Richard Tosto de Oliveira?
Richard Tosto de Oliveira is the man who comes up with great strategies, which have led him to win various complex cases in the country. The fact that he has been able to deal with so many famous cases is impeccable. Through his firm, well known for its fantastic services, he has been able to win cases for very prominent personalities, large Brazilian corporations, and many government politicians.
Consequently, International Law Organization crowned him with the prize award of the ILO Client Choice Award, 2013.With his excellent leadership skills; there are also individuals, in the law industry, who refer to him as his mentor. He has been able to raise several lawyers, who work with him as partners at his law firm. Richard Tosto de Oliveira has taught them strategies that he uses in litigation of cases.
If the law schools in Brazil had the capability of producing individuals, such as Richard Tosto de Oliveira, then the millions of cases, which are pending, would be outdated. With hundreds of thousands of graduated professionals in the country, the judiciary seems to be slow in how they handle complex cases.
The “slow judiciary” as many would name it.
As more and more individuals graduated from schools, most of them end up working for private law firms, such as Richard Tosto de Oliviera’s firm. Employment vacancies in the government are not as much, and hence private companies act as an escape route for the many who are graduating from thousands of Law schools every year.
