They also borrow heavily from the German and French civil law. Brazil legal system is simply a hybrid of various legal system practiced mostly in the European countries. Brazil has one supreme law known as the Constitution. This is the law that guides any other law that is
in existence. The Brazilian Constitution was passed about three decades ago. It allows for three systems of government namely, the executive, legislature, and judiciary. It then allows for the country to be subdivided into 26 federal states. Each of these states is allowed to make its own laws but they must make sure that it is in conformity with the , which is the Constitution.
