Advanced Topics in Labor Law and Labor Procedure
COD Workload Description
62432-02 30 This course will look at individual labor contracts in face of its legal importance in the employee-employer relationship. It is intended to provide deeper insights into research on individual labor relations through original topics outside of dogmatism, such as the relations between labor and environment; labor and consumption; labor and knowledge. In view of the new economic, legal and political realities, resulting from the globalization of all productive sectors, we urge for a different analysis, one that questions the maintenance of the former relationship between capital-labor. This course will also enable the understanding of legal relevance of individual and collective labor relations, within a historical and sociological context. Collective movements are rooted in labor and in the quest for better labor conditions and better salaries. So, the topics will be addressed both in a sociological and dogmatic way. Contemporary Labor Law, rooted in social and economic aspects, is geared towards new postulations in the quest for the answers of new contemporary yearnings. Similarly, based on a constitutional view, it will look at the origins of labor legislation and the evolution of labor laws. It will address the principles of labor procedures and the new responsibilities of Labor Courts. It will look at the labor procedures and their peculiarities in the preliminary stages (trial and appeals court), execution and its effectiveness, class actions and special procedures. The course will go beyond dogmatism and will enable the understanding of the legal relevance of labor procedural relations, within a historical and sociological context. So, the topics will be addressed both in a sociological and dogmatic way.

New technologies: Labor Procedures and Relations
COD Workload Description
82406-02 30 Social relations change as the employment of Information and Communication Technologies spreads rapidly. The relationship of citizens with the state changes as it becomes more intense and maximized. In our state, especially over the last 20 years, the Judiciary has experienced procedural changes that have challenged some classical areas, such as competent jurisdiction (a traditional limiting factor to legal practice). E-actions, then, urges for consolidated studies at the academic level. On the other hand, new arrangements in the productive organization of the world have brought about new paradigms to employment relations. Phenomena such as globalization, the internet and virtual relationships have produced such notorious transformations to the extent that conflicts arising therein can be judged, since because they come from relations in several contexts, they are also unusual. In this complex scenario, the jurist's actions will change in view of electronic processes and it is of utmost importance to understand the interfaces between the real and the virtual. Keywords: New technologies; E-actions; Labor relations.

It will introduce students to the principles of justice and their applications within the idea of justice as equity, as a political conception of person and justice. It will point the fundamental aspects of a fair Constitution. It will describe political freedom and the principles of rule of law.
