Brazil’s Supreme Court (Superior Tribunal Federal, or STF) has become an important political actor in recent decades. Many of the country’s most important issues are shaped by decisions made by the 11 members of  the court, whose hearings are nationally televised. The STF is simultaneously a constitutional court, a criminal court for the holders of high political office (including the President, Vice-President, and members of Congress), and Brazil’s highest appeal court. Justices of the STF are appointed by the President and approved by the Senate. The STF’s Chief Justice (called the President in Brazil) is elected for a two-year term by a secret ballot of the justices, with the most senior judge who has not yet served traditionally being selected.

 

Joaquim Barbosa has been a judge in the STF since 2003, and its Chief Justice since 2012.  Born in Paracatu, Minas Gerais, Minister Barbosa studied law at the University of Brasília (UnB) and did a master’s and PhD. in law at the Université Panthéon Assas in Paris. Before arriving at the Supreme Court, Minister Barbosa was a prosecutor in the Federal Public Ministry and an adjunct professor in the Law School at the Rio de Janeiro State University (UERJ). Minister Barbosa was a visiting scholar at the Centre for Human Rights at Columbia Law School, New York City in 1999-2000, and at the UCLA School of Law in 2002-3. 

In his lecture, the Chief Justice will make a historical assessment of the Brazil Supreme Court (STF), present the main changes the court has undergone in the past decade and analyse some of its most emblematic cases.
