In 1992, a group of prominent Brazilian scholars led by Professors Jacob Dolinger (Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro) and Keith Rosenn (University of Miami) created the journal Panorama of Brazilian Law as an attempt to provide reliable legal information on Brazilian Law for non-Portuguese speakers. Originally planned as a Yearbook, the ancient PBL presented papers related to several branches of Brazilian law written by respected authors. Due to several reasons, this groundbreaking project did not go ahead and the inaugural issue was the only one released.
In order to rescue the goals and ideas of the original project, the first number of the new Panorama of Brazilian Law was issued in 2013 with sixteen articles in three different languages – English, French and German - covering several brands of Brazilian law. Besides its print version, the yearbook is also available in the electronic magazine format (www.panoramaofbrazilianlaw.com) which allows a broader perspective for the broadcasting of articles reaching a greater number of potential researchers.
For this second edition, papers written in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Swedish were able to submission. Papers in English, French, German and Spanish were selected and are original and unpublished. Versions of papers originally released in Portuguese or published in the context of academic conferences were also accepted.
The Scientific Council is responsible for the Editorial Line of the magazine, whose goals are to spread information about Brazil’s legal order and juridical environment among non-Portuguese speakers.
Formal aspects and criteria for publication are found at the www.panoramaofbrazilianlaw.com website under “about” > “submissions” > “author guidelines”. The call for papers for its forthcoming volume 3 is already available.
The tolerant and plural perspective of the project, which is opened to all branches of Brazilian law, was determinant for choosing not to establish a hermetic format concerning the logical organization of the articles – neither with respect to its distribution along the yearbook nor in the organization adopted by authors in its papers.
The access to the online magazine is completely free of costs or registration.
The editors of Panorama of Brazilian Law are very happy with the present success and positive repercussions of the project and hope to provide foreign researchers an ultimate way to access Brazilian law.
Brazil, April 2015.
