The Brazilian legal system was started in 1988 and is composed of two different courts: the specialized courts, which are controlled by the Federal Government, and ordinary courts. The specialized courts have three different areas as well. These areas are electoral courts, military courts, and ordinary courts. Within these areas there are two more, the Supreme Court and Superior Court. Their job is to take care of the laws, make sure that the Federal Constitution are upheld, and violations to the nation are taken care of.
