Brazil is a federal state governed by three arms of government, the Executive, the Legislature, and the Judiciary. The legislature formulates and passes laws while the executive approves and implement those rules. Conversely, the judiciary is the custodian of law, meaning it is responsible for interpreting the law. Brazil anchors all its regulations in the Federal Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land. Brazil passed and promulgated its Federal Constitution 29 years ago. The mandate of operating the judiciary rests with the judges who are appointed from the most experienced attorneys in the land.

While Brazil anchors its laws in the supreme law of the land, the Federal Constitution, it is completed by several other legal documents. These documents include the Costume Defense Code, the Civil Code, the Commercial Code, and the Criminal Suit Code. Brazil applies all these codes in compliance with the supreme law of the land, the Federal Constitution. Brazil’s Federal Constitution subdivides the nation into small units of administration referred to as the Federal States. The constitution allows these states to formulate their laws, but they must abide by the provisions of the Federal Constitution.

Lawyers are the only legal experts recognized by the Brazilian legal practice. In an initiative geared towards strengthening Brazil’s legal practice, the government has embarked on building new law schools across the country. Upon graduating with degrees in law from the universities, students must attend the law schools. It is only after acquiring the necessary certification and qualification that one can qualify to practice law in Brazil. Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho features as one of Brazil’s most experienced lawyers. He started practice about 26 years ago upon receiving his Law degree from Mackenzie Presbyterian University and acquiring necessary certifications from Brazil’s Bar Association. Ricardo Tosto has built himself an impressive profile in the Brazilian legal practice. His clientele base includes government agencies and NGOs from around the world. Ricardo Tosto is one of the most experienced litigants in his law firm, Leite, Tosto and Barros Advogados Associados. Lawyers practicing under the firm attribute their success to Ricardo Tosto’s hard work and determination.

The path to becoming a lawyer is long and difficult. Going through law school can take up to six years. Additionally, law schools teach only the basics of law. They do not teach students on the realities that they will face in the legal world.

Karl Heideck, a lawyer based in Philadelphia, has some pointers that should be useful for an aspiring lawyers who are in law school.

The first thing a student in law school should do is check the requirements needed for the states where one intends to practice law in. Each states has its own requirements that must be met for one to practice law in that state. For example California requires one to pass the California Bar Exam, the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination and a pass or exemption for the First Year Law Students Exam. However if you intend to practice law in New York, one must do an essay and the multistate bar exam. Heideck advises student’s to research on all requirements needed for their state.

The second pointer that is extremely important is that of networking. Students must ensure that they have made connections with practicing lawyers, teachers and their fellow students. After leaving school they must ensure they are in position to leverage the connections they made while still in school. Heideck advises one to ensure they interact with their connections face to face. This ensures that one is not forgotten and strengthens the significance of the relationship.

Mike Baur recently gave insight into raising young entrepreneurs, and what parents need to know. Baur is co-founder of the Swiss Startup Factory, a Zurich-based think tank that takes novice entrepreneurs and shapes them and their innovative ideas into the next big thing.


According to Mike Baur, as a parent, you inspire entrepreneurship by boosting emotional skills that children will need, such as the convenience of taking risks, effective problem solving. “Emotional and social skills are very important, as well as a positive attitude towards failure,” says Baur. “This will help shape a child’s behavior.”


Here are three tips to boost your child’s entrepreneurial calling;


  1. Promote Effective Problem-solving


When a problem arises in the life of your child, brainstorm ideas to find a solution together. Assist kids with identifying problems, and lead them to consider several scenarios and solutions. They should learn to consider all sides of a situation, and then select the best option.


  1. Help Kids Learn From Failure


One essential tool for entrepreneurs is to try, try again. Influence your child to try and if they face failure, learn and try again. Baur says to remember that criticism is an opportunity to point out flaws and help your child brainstorm how to modify and resolve the issues. Children must learn how to handle criticism and find the positive message.


  1. Let Them Make Decisions


“Expose kids to what it feels like to make a decision and they will feel good about it,” says Baur. This will develop early independence, but limit their options, and as they grow give them more choices so they will become confident in major decision-making.


  1. Boost Their Sense of Mastery


Entrepreneurs take big risks, but feel comfortable doing so, and this does not happen overnight. Children need freedom to test their limits, and master their fears. When a child is faced with a risky situation, give as much help as needed, then slowly transition so they can gain independence.


  1. Challenge the Status Quo


We grow up learning to follow rules, unfortunately, this practice hinders entrepreneurship. Baur says, a great alternative is teaching kids to challenge the norm and seek what other innovative paths they could take and why.


Baur’s Zurich-based startup, the Swiss Startup Factory, mentors upcoming entrepreneurs on all matters to jump start their business. With a successful track record, Mike Baur prides himself on helping young innovative minds grow their businesses and see their dreams transform from ideas into successful ventures.

Finances are very important, in that, it takes money to make money. When starting a business you need to expect that you will put money into it without initially turning a profit.


A business plan is necessary in general so that you will have an idea of what you need and what everything will cost.

The fashion industry is not for the faint of heart. Succeeding in fashion is next to impossible with Amazon controls 20 percent of the fashion e-commerce market. But somehow, Kate Hudson is doing just that. Having grown a $250 million business in just three years is all the evidence anyone needs to understand how successful Fabletics has become.

Fabletic’s foundation is based on customer satisfaction. It’s part of the reason that Fabletics is such a high-value brand. Back in the day, all a company needed was fair prices and good quality products. Today, consumers care about the extra features a company is willing to offer.

The overall atmosphere and service of Fabletics are what’s allowing it to thrive so furiously. With such immense success from their e-commerce site, Fabletics is now exploring physical stores. After the first year of opening, Fabletics established 16 stores and plans on opening more by the end of next year.

The one downside to opening physical stores is solving the problem of people wanting to shop online. A lot of people like walking around stores and looking, but they end up buying from another company online cheaper. To solve that problem, Fabletics introduced a strategy they call “reverse showrooming”.

Instead of going the pop-up store route, Fabletics focuses on building relationships and getting to know the local markets. They use that information to stock each store with items that they know people in that area will purchase.

As a result, the majority of people walking through their doors are already members. These events and other activities are a chance for newcomers to see what special features being a Fabletics member has to offer. In addition to the majority, another 25 percent of visitors end up becoming members in store.

As with any successful company, there are people trying to bring the brand down. Fortunately, there are people who speak for Fabletics, who are not sponsored by Fabletics in any way. One such reviewer stated that she would recommend Fabletics to someone who was truly interested in giving Fabletics a try.

One fact she pointed out about Fabletics is the ability to skip monthly payments. Anytime she doesn’t see something she wants, Fabletics allows its members to skip that month’s membership fee. So members only have to pay for the months they want to buy something.
