Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s LEEP Brazil Program is an innovative experience that provides academic and professional development through the debate and discussion of issues involving the defense of the state and strengthening of the democracy as well as the internationalization of law through globalization. Participation by members of Brazil’s public advocacy organizations contributes to the professional development of Brazil’s federal lawyers, lawyers in general and law enforcement officers. Participation in this program also generates a wealth of knowledge to assist in the long range search for solutions to issues arising in national and international judicial models. It is important to note the high quality of interaction that LEEP fosters between the various organizations and institutions representing Brazil’s legal community and those of other countries.
The LEEP Program is supported by OAB SP Sao Paulo BAR Association, which enables meetings and international exchange between lawyers, scientists and jurists as well as teachers, experts, public administrators, legislators and magistrates who contribute to academic and professional dialogue.
Another highlight and product of the LEEP Program will be the launch of several books, articles and studies promoting the technical and scientific production areas of program participants’ knowledge of study and practice. The goal of these publications is to discuss issues of international and public legal interest with comparative standards and the study of models of state defense documents and rights of citizens, aimed to empower human rights in view of the questions related to sustainability, social inclusion and economic development.
