Lawyers are numerous in Brazil.A recent finding released by the National Council of Justice (CNJ) ranked the country third globally regarding the number of lawyers. The second position went to the United States, while India was ranked first. This phenomenon may be explained by the numerous law schools in the South American country. Interestingly Brazil boasts of more law schools than all the nations of the world combined. One would think such a high numbers translated to scores of registered lawyers. But that is hardly the case, what with only about 800 are approved by the Brazilian Bar Examination, BBA.
The quality of law education is also low; some of the widening courses in law are substandard and not recommendable. The Ministry of Education (MEC) is overseeing many of these questionable courses. And to improve quality, MEC started inspecting all the courses offered at the universities to elevate the dwindling standards. The Ministry also targets to reduce law students that do not meet the threshold of approval of the Brazilian Bar Examination by the time they graduate so as to equip would be graduates with the needed prerequisites for the Brazilian Bar.
