“Prima facie”, we translate that Latin expression into English as “at first sight” or “first impression” but it is more than that. Before a trial we have a "prima facie case" in common law. The plaintiff needs to provide a minimum in terms of evidences, or he does not have a case allowed to continue in the judicial process. In health care we can say “prima facie” to describe some procedures of investigation about the maternal risk at the first trimester. In social life people collect arguments and evidences at first sight when they would like to say anything important and true. Prima Facie is not the last word but the beginning of a debate. Reasoning is in construction. A viewpoint in “prima facie” means a real situation which we can verify in terms of value, test quality or usefulness. We must examine materials we are seeing. Ability and competence are prerequisites if you would like to understand the opinion someone has presented before. We can also use “prima facie” in cases where we are speaking of a higher obligation in comparison with another less important one. It is imperative that be done. The Prima Facie, UFPB, online, ISSN 1678-2593, is an international journal, and is published twice a year by the Law Graduate Program of UFPB. This law journal has interfaces with Philosophy, History, Political Sciences, Sociology, and others. Its goal is to present actual debates about Brazilian problems in relation with the World and so we invite the participation of national and international scholars. On the round table you will read discussions on sustainable development, economic growth, criminality, human rights, environment, violence, state power, cultural globalization, health, biolaw and labor, public institutions, civil society and private subjects. By its articles and book reviews you will be in contact with these fields. Our editorial office is located in the CCJ at Federal University of Paraíba (UFPB).
