New book on business law is result of research into Superior Court of Appeals begun in 2020
The book Business Law and the Superior Court of Appeals caps off the qualitative research stage of a research project of the same name, which was initiated in 2020 by the Center for Research in Law and Economics (CPDE) at Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Rio de Janeiro Law School.
Written by João Manoel de Lima Junior, Gustavo Tavares Borba and José Gabriel de Assis Almeida, the book is made up of 12 thematic chapters that comment on 111 decisions by the court.
The objective was to identify the broad thrust of decisions made by the Superior Court of Appeals in matters related to business law and in particular corporate law. To do this, the research was divided into two stages: first quantitative and then qualitative.
The quantitative research looked at the database of the court’s decisions to identify those that were classified by the court itself as involving corporate law. The court’s decisions in areas related to corporate law were then analyzed.
Through an academic cooperation agreement between FGV and the Superior Court of Appeals to carry out applied research, the research team accessed the court’s database and identified the decisions classified as involving corporate law. After this initial survey, the decisions were filtered into different stages and the research team then identified those most relevant to the court’s practice.
Business Law and the Superior Court of Appeals gives readers access to the court’s decisions and the authors’ comments on them, including whether they were in accordance with the court’s jurisprudence, whether they were innovative and whether they were in line with doctrinal evolution. In this way, the book sheds light on the Superior Court of Appeals’ decisions in the field of corporate law.
