Abstract: This article aims to analyze how the dimensions of Transitional Justice can be carried out by the Judiciary. The historical retrospective shows a reduction of autonomy of the Judiciary during the dictatorship, but also a certain connivance of this power with the regime of exception. The study shows that the decisions made by the Judiciary have the capacity to directly interfere in the Brazilian transitional justice process in the four conceptual pillars. It concludes that there is a need for a change in institutional thinking, so that the Judiciary, aware and committed to the transitional process, can reduce conflicts and build a socially legitimized democracy.
