Explanation:
As for the first two terms, I hope you know their meaning.

As for that "julgados da paz", this mean special judges, which possess power and authority to resolve some small (or alsmot not-criminal) cases (by finding a peaceful solution which satisfies both the adversaries). These judges are very popular, e.g., in Eastern countries.

Hope this helps to clarify the sense.

Sincerely yours,
Dr. Tagir S. Tagirov,
