Brazilian Congress of Legal History

[We have the following announcement.]

VII Brazilian Congress of Legal History, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Lecture Rooms at the IHGB (Brazilian Historical and Geographical Institute), Avenida Augusto Severo, n. 8, Centro, Rio de Janeiro, September 1–5, 2014

The seventh edition of the Brazilian Congress of Legal History, promoted by IBHD (Brazilian Institute of Legal History), will take place, in 2014, in Rio de Janeiro, organized by UERJ (State University of Rio de Janeiro) and its post-graduation program in Law, and hosted in the lecture rooms of the traditional Brazilian Historical and Geographical Institute (IHGB). The event will be supported by many important institutions in Rio de Janeiro such as UFF (Federal Fluminense University), UFRJ (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro) and PUC-RJ (Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro), through their post-graduation programs in Law, as well as other Brazilian institutions, such as UFPR (Federal University of Paraná) and UnB (University of Brasília), also through their post-graduation programs in Law.

Established as one of the international scientific congresses with highest density in the academic area of research in Law in Brazil, due to the frequent massive presence of the most important names from Brazil and abroad, as well as being the main “locus” of presenting and divulging new historical-legal research (through Working Groups activities), in 2014 the congress will focus on the tradition of Private Law – be it in legal experiences in medieval or modern times, and, in Brazil, be it during Portuguese Empire, or during Imperial and Independent Brazil, or in Republican Brazil.
