The following resources include primary and secondary legal reference materials, as well as government and non-government websites that provide access to free online legal information about Brazil.
Official gazettes are primary sources of law published by national governments to disseminate new legislation, regulations, and decisions of governmental bodies. These publications may also contain other information including the text of international agreements, court decisions, official announcements, and government notices. For countries with civil law systems, the official gazette often serves as the sole source of the authoritative texts of laws until updated codes are published. In most countries, a law enters into force on the date of publication in the official gazette. For a complete list of the Law Library's gazettes, please visit the Foreign Legal Gazette Collection.
