Civil law in Brazil is currently regulated by the Civil Code of 2002, which currently governs not only Civil Law itself, but also other areas of law, such as: Family and Succession Law, Business Law, Real Estate Law, among others.
This breadth of the Civil Code stems from the fact that its rules apply to the various areas mentioned in a subsidiary manner, that is, they affect different legal relationships if the special rules are not sufficient to resolve the dispute.
Hence the great importance of Civil Law. It serves as a basic structure in the construction of the study of law, that is, without full knowledge of its rules, the lawyer will not be able to perform a good job in whatever competes him.
Although the Civil Code is the main legislation in Civil Law, there are numerous laws that also have the same nature. Examples are: Law 9.278 / 96 (stable union); Law 8.069 / 90 (Statute of Children and Adolescents); Law 8,245 / 91 (Rental Law); Law 4,595 / 64 (Banking Reform Law - National Financial System); Law 4,591 / 64 (Condominium Law in Buildings and Real Estate Development); Law 4,864 / 65 (Civil Construction Law); among others.
Thus, it is important to verify that Civil Law is vast. It can cover legal relationships between family members (ECA; Stable Union; etc.) up to contractual relationships formalized in Real Estate Law. Hence the real importance of the lawyer knowing the national civil legislation.
