Prof. Luís Roberto Barroso ’89 LLM to Discuss Brazil’s Unbalanced Democracy
Prof. Luís Roberto Barroso ’89 LLM, one of Brazil’s foremost constitutional scholars, will be at Yale Law School on Monday, February 21, to discuss “Brazil’s Unbalanced Democracy: Presidential Hegemony, Legislative Fragility and the Rise of Judicial Power.” The talk, facilitated by Prof. Bruce Ackerman ’67, will take place at 6:15 p.m. in Room 129. It is free and open to the public.
“In his lecture, Mr. Barroso will examine the implications of the distribution of political power between branches in Brazilian government, including the growing importance of the judicial branch as a political player, and he’ll present some proposals for institutional reform in key areas,” said Diego Arguelhes ’08 LLM ’13 JSD, an organizer of the event who has taught constitutional law in Brazil and studied law at Rio de Janeiro State University.
Barroso is a Professor of Law at Rio de Janeiro State University and a Visiting Professor of Contemporary Constitutional Law at University of Brasília. Currently, he is serving as a visiting scholar at Harvard Law School. He is also a senior partner at Luís Roberto Barroso & Associados in Rio de Janeiro, specializing in public law and Supreme Court litigation, and has argued many high profile cases before the Brazilian Supreme Court.
He holds an LLB from Rio de Janeiro State University, an LLM from Yale Law School, and an SJD from Rio de Janeiro State University.
