Cycle (Law Degree) requires theoretical and doctrinal learning only later realized in concrete cases and specialties allowing the student a general knowledge of the legal system, critical ability to analyze the laws and rules of law from Conceptual rigor and exposure in their opinions. I studied Comparative Law in Brazil in 2010, both in UNICURITIBA, city of Curitiba,State of Paraná and in the Law School of the University of the State of Rio de Janeiro.
