Harvard Law Brazilian Association Legal Symposium : The Law in the 21st Century


Monday, April 16, 2018, 8:30am to 6:00pm


Harvard Law School, 1585 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge

The Harvard Law Brazilian Association Legal Symposium is an annual congress designed and organized by current students and alumni of Harvard Law School from Brazil. The event will be held at Harvard, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

We believe that the exchange of ideas is the most efficient way to address the latest social changes confronting Law scholars and practitioners, as a variety of legal problems are germane to both Brazil and the United States. Our goal is to nurture a unique opportunity for networking and learning, by bringing together high-profile speakers, who will convey their lessons about hot-button, legal-related issues to an audience of seasoned professionals and promising students. The result we vow to achieve is to strengthen Brazil's reputation abroad, as well as to provide our participants with valuable perspectives from the international experience.

We also believe that a thorough understanding of the Law in its social context requires that lawyers be exposed to multidisciplinary knowledge. The influx of ideas from other fields is especially pressing in the 21st Century, a time when information is developed and spread at an ever-increasing pace. Lest we forget, some of our lecturers include economists, engineers, computer scientists, and historians, on top of legal professionals and academics from different areas of Law.

Finally, it is our principle that institutions play a pivotal role in fostering social development. We will encourage our guests to explore cutting-edge insights into the design of legal devices as a means of making our societies more equitable, in thrilling keynote sessions, panel discussions, and workshops.

We are confident that, after this event, a message will echo across our nations: "Institutions drive progress."
