Ricardo Tosto’s Accomplishments in the Brazilian Law Sector

Brazil is the third country in the world with the highest number of lawyers. Law schools in the country offer 1,240 undergraduate and postgraduate law courses according to a 2010 report compiled by the Brazilian National Council of Justice. Only 800,000 law graduates passed the Brazilian Bar Examination. According to the report, if all Brazilian law graduates passed the examination, the country would have more than 3 million law practitioners.

The Ministry of Education (MEC) supervises law courses in Brazil. On the other hand, the Commission of Educational Specialist visits schools with unsatisfactory results and recommends effective educational strategies to promote improvements. The MEC ensures that if a school records improvements, the course in which students under performed is evaluated and appropriate measures implemented. In 2013, Folha de São Paulo University Rank selected the best ten law schools in Brazil, and the Federal University of Minas Gerais took the first position. Law School of São Paulo and the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul took the second and third places respectively.

Debt Collectors May Be Able To Buy A Lawsuit If They Are Being Sued

It’s no secret. The judicial system is running off the tracks. Judges are making decisions that make no sense. Illogical decisions cause a great deal of harm to the American population. Going to court to seek justice is not a good idea. The court is no place to settle a claim. A court is a place for attorneys to practice their skills. Skills that ordinary citizens called low-down and underhanded. But in court that are called legal tactics taught by the legal profession that wants to keep the rest of the population in a state of confusion.

A recent ruling by a federal judge in Las Vegas proves that all sense of fairness and justice do not exist in any type of lower court. The Las Vegas judge ruled that a debt collector could buy the lawsuit they were named in, and that would eliminate the lawsuit and the rights of the women that sued. If the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco agrees with the Las Vegas judge, more debt collectors will use this legal tactic to protect themselves from liability, according to a Bloomberg.com article.

The Las Vegas Judge, U.S. District Judge Jennifer Dorsey, made that ridiculous ruling, and it only took her 11 minutes to do it. If Debt collectors have that kind of protection, the harassment and threats that that industry uses to collect money from people that do not have it will increase substantially. The debt collection industry is composed of mostly bottom feeders that work on commission. It is a system that is severely flawed. When people default on a debt, there is usually a reason behind the default. Instead of turning the debt over to debt collectors, the companies holding the note should spend the time and the money and formulate a reasonable solution. That solution could include a work to pay-off the debt situation, or rearranging the debt by changing the interest, time and amount of the debt. Many of these defaulted debts are written off by the company that is holding the debt. If there is a legitimate reason for the default, the company should find some way to help instead of releasing the attack dogs, and trying to bully money out of people that have no money to pay.
