FGV launches selection process for Brazil’s first doctorate in regulation
The Fundação Getulio Vargas Rio de Janeiro Law School has launched the selection process for Brazil’s first doctorate focusing on regulatory law, featuring two research areas: “Regulatory Governance and Legal Institutions” and “The Economy, Intervention and Regulatory Strategies.” The course’s area of focus lies at the center of debates about recent transformations in the structure of the administrative state. Applications for the course are open until October 1.
“The subject is considered fundamental in Brazil and across the world, as it is related to debates about recent transformations in the structure of the administrative state and other issues such as the design, implementation and monitoring of public policies, the development of infrastructure sectors, the use of regulations to define and implement important constitutional objectives, the regulation of technologies, and knowledge and analysis of interactions between state and non-state regulatory mechanisms,” says the coordinator of master’s and PhD courses at the FGV´s Rio de Janeiro Law School, Professor Fernando Leal.
The selection process for the course’s six vacancies (three for each research area) is organized into four stages: an English language test, a specific knowledge test (based on literature specified in the public notice), analysis and evaluation of each student’s proposed research project, and an interview in which candidates make a case for their project. To apply, you must have a master’s degree, preferably in law, from a Brazilian institution or a master’s obtained abroad that has been validated in Brazil.
