The Minister of the Superior Electoral Tribunal (SET), Luciana Lóssio, has a successful career in advocacy. She received her degree, Electoral Rights, from the Central University of Brasilia in 1999, the same year she was accepted into the Order of Brazilian Lawyers. Beside her graduate degree, the minister earned three postgraduate degrees as well: first in Procedural Civil Rights, secondly in State and Constitutional Rights, and recently obtained another in Legal Order and Public Ministry. Lóssio also is a member of the Brazilian Electoral Rights Institute.
During her career as a lawyer, Lóssio has handled some important clients, including various governors and high ranking members of the Executive Branch. Aside from professional conquests, the Minister also has contributed to important victories for women. She made history as the first female lawyer to step into the position of Minister of the SET in 2011.
The acting minister of the SET also served in the Republic Prosecuting General for seven years, working beside two ex-prosecuting general employees: Cláudio Fonteles and Geraldo Brindeiro. During her service to the Republic Prosecuting General, Luciana was brought in as a highly qualified and brilliant consultant by the SET for a number of important cases.
Luciana Lóssio has demonstrated exemplary knowledge in diverse fields of law. Her ability to deal with highly complex situations and cases unquestionably validate her ability to serve as Titular Minister of the Superior Electoral Tribunal. Lóssio’s skills are of utmost importance in a time of political crisis and in the year before elections. She will most assuredly contribute significantly to the success of the SET institution.
Luciana Lóssio also has a hobby on the weekends; equestrianism. She started to learn the art of riding at the age of six and has learned over time to balance her professional career with her passion for riding. Her dedication has earned her the title of Champion Brazilian Amateur Jumper, held in Brasília, over forty other male and female riders. At the event, Luciana received perfect marks three consecutive times while riding her horse, Nikita. She has even represented Brazil in equestrian competitions abroad where she has always counted on the support of her father on the track.
Conquering obstacles both with competence and resourcefulness, whether it is on the equestrian track or in the courts, Luciana, despite her youth, could play a key role in strengthening the Brazilian Institutions of Law.
