FGV holds first national judiciary exam

Starting this year, candidates for the judiciary must take the Judiciary Exam (ENAM) as a prerequisite for state, federal, labor and military judge selection processes, in accordance with National Justice Council Resolution 75 of 2009. This initiative aims to improve the selection processes for judges, strengthen the national character of this career, standardize knowledge and democratize access, making the judiciary more diverse and representative of the Brazilian population.

ENAM is regulated and organized by the National Judge Training School (Enfam), in collaboration with the National Labor Judge Training School (Enamat). It will be held by FGV Knowledge.

“Committed and humanistic judges, both female and male, are indispensable for our country. Our goal is a more effective judicial service for society, and I am confident that ENAM is an important step in aligning the judiciary with the needs of the Brazilian people,” said the director-general of ENFAM, Justice Mauro Campbell Marques.

Applications will be accepted until March 7 and the exam will take place in all Brazilian state capitals on April 14. The exam will consist of 80 questions, which will assess knowledge of constitutional law, administrative law, general notions of law and humanistic training, human rights, civil procedural law, civil law, business law and criminal law. The exam will be exclusively eliminatory: candidates with a score of under 70% will leave the selection process. The cut-off score will be different for black, indigenous and disabled people, as stated in the exam’s public notice.

This initiative was spearheaded by Justice Luís Roberto Barroso, president of the Federal Supreme Court and head of the National Justice Council, with the aim of reaching people with a vocation and sense of justice, who understand that judges must seek to resolve conflicts while taking the feasibility of decisions into account.

“In a democratic republic, what counts is merit. No one has the right to subjectively choose who has the ‘right profile’ for a job. Subjectivity is always a danger and provides scope for prejudice,” Barroso said in an interview with legal website Conjur.

For more information and details about the application period, content and how the exam will take place, see the ENAM website and public notice.
