Brazil has 181.000 laws which have a high contrast to most legislations in the United States. The American legal system allows the published suggestions by judges to become law, whereas the Brazilian system only elevates codified laws and views them as the binding rule. Brazilian laws have the enactment of legislative bodies and the highest courts make decisions about binding opinions by judges.
