Capes PrInt

FGV Sao Paulo Law School participates in the Institutional Internationalization Program (PrInt) of the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (Capes), to expand its participation in international debates and advance in cutting-edge legal issues in the national scenario.

The program was created to foster internationalization plans of the selected institutions, stimulate the formation of international research networks, and promote the mobility of professors and students from abroad to Brazil and vice versa.

Next, learn more about FGV Sao Paulo Law School projects selected by Capes PrInt, and the resulting research products, such as disciplines, seminars, cooperation with foreign institutions, and publications, among others.

FGV Sao Paulo Law School projects selected by Capes PrInt

Corporate Compliance in BRICS Countries

The project intends to investigate to what extent corporate compliance programs of companies operating in BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) comply with applicable legislation and best international practices.

It also intends to investigate whether the domestic legislation of BRICS countries follows OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) recommendations and the principles outlined in the legislation of OECD member countries.

We assume that a comprehensive understanding of the specific legislation on corporate anti-corruption in BRICS countries will allow identifying the ambiguities and legislative trends of each national environment.

Comparing national and international rules and practices will also disclose the level of adherence of each BRICS country to global standards.

We will also achieve a more precise view of how BRICS countries implement their anti-corruption rules locally, as well as the differences and similarities between the various solutions adopted.

We expect that the survey results will provide useful information for the adoption of integrity measures that strengthen local institutions positively.

On the other hand, the possibility of establishing common practices can favor the development of institutionally close markets, providing new opportunities for growth.

The results will also compose a database that can be used in multilateral negotiations, seeking common guidelines for corporate compliance and anti-corruption programs in BRICS countries.

Within the scope of the program, the project includes participation in international events and invitations to visiting scholars.

Fighting Corruption and Money Laundering in BRICS Countries (book)

Organized by professors from FGV Sao Paulo Law School, Maria Lucia Padua Lima and Paulo Goldschmidt, the book is the result of extensive research carried out by professors from five academic institutions in the member countries of BRICS: Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.

The research aimed to analyze the anti-corruption legislation in each of these countries, showing the similarities and differences in fighting corruption, in terms of internal legal frameworks and international guidelines.

It was launched during the 2020 meeting of the Law Schools Global League (LSGL), held at the University of New South Wales, in Sydney, Australia.

Law in the Digital Era

The project starts with the diagnosis that technological advances have changed social, economic, and political relations. In Law, this was reflected in the creation of new areas (such as digital law, protection of personal data, electronic crimes), the emergence of new regulatory designs (such as the regulatory sandbox), and the changing role of professionals. At the same time, cognitive task automation and artificial intelligence tools have increased the relationship of legal professionals with technology.

The project’s objective is to understand: (i) the multiple dimensions of technological advance, and its implications for the social relations that arise from the new scenario; (ii) the impact of these technologies on legal professions and the training of students in Law courses; and (iii) ways to reconcile technological development with political, ethical, and social guidelines for the development of society and the Brazilian State. Based on this understanding, the project team intends to encourage debates on the meaning and regulation of new technologies, seeking to contribute to the formulation of public policies and professional training programs, aligned with the future needs of the legal market.

Project internationalization will take place in three fronts: a) visits, through international missions, to countries that underwent significant social and professional changes resulting from the intensive adoption of technology, especially in the legal field; b) participation in international events, and scholarships in Brazil, for exchange with foreign professors and professionals, to discuss cutting-edge topics in Law; c) comparative studies, through scholarships in Brazil and abroad, on the subject of Law and Technology.

Within the scope of the program, the project includes:

- International work missions in 2019 and 2021

- Resources for project maintenance

- Postdoctoral scholarships

Up to now, the project  trained one school employee, organized a work mission to a foreign institution (Australia), and offered a free course in the Stricto Sensu Academic graduate program, open to outside students . Currently, the team is conducting interviews with professors and experts from other countries to find out changes and relevant actors for the debate, starting with the discussion on intellectual property and legal education.

The project contributes to FGV's internationalization program, by identifying strategic players on the international scene, mapping opportunities for joint initiatives (such as offering open courses and exchange of researchers), and international funding. The researcher trained by the project in Germany provided a list of German institutions that address the subject, while the Center for Education and Research on Innovation (CEPI) of FGV Sao Paulo Law School established research links with the University of Edinburgh, for joint academic initiatives.
