Legal Discourse across Cultures and Systems

Celina Frade

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter analyzes the implications of legal globalization in the context of Brazil, a Portuguese-speaking and civil law country, but one which is fully integrated into the global economy. It emphasizes the adjustments that need to be made to comply with the latest requirements for becoming “legally global” through the enactment of the Brazilian Arbitration Law and the implications this has on national legal practice, culture, discourse, and education. The chapter points out how national legal discourse tends to display a new texturing of meanings to reflect the “generalized tensions between international practices and local traditions,” while at the same time legal education and professional training calls for a new perspective for training “international lawyers” to achieve “core international legal competence.”

Keywords:   Brazil, Portuguese, arbitration law, legal discourse, legal competence, global economy
