In any part of the world, people would respect you more or even fear you when they hear that you are a student of law, leave alone being a lawyer. Upon completing law school, a person goes through rigorous internship before they finally are qualified to be legal practitioners. Things are not any different in Brazil.
Some of the youngest lawyers here are around 23 years old, having spent precisely six years studying law, and some more in law firms as interns, to learn the art. Learning alone is not enough as before one is certified as professional lawyer, they first must sit and pass a Bar Exam. Like in any country, Brazilian law is difficult to crack and needs a professional to represent or interpret it accurately to you.
This is making many people join law schools to meet the demands of a lot of individuals who are in need of representation in court or need law interpretation. Also, the Brazilian constitution having only created in 1988, prompts a lot of people to become lawyers and better understand the law of the land.
In Brazil today, there are more than 700000 thousand lawyers. Much more have completed schooling but have not yet sat a mandatory Bar Exams or have sat but not passed. You could be permitted to render services to clients if you failed unless you repeat the exam and pass. As of 2011, there used to be 676,845, a figure that is feared to have increased dramatically.
