He graduated in Law and Social Sciences from the Faculty of Law of the then University of Recife, today the Federal University of Pernambuco, in 1938.

He defended his thesis on General Theory of the State in 1944, and his doctorate in Law and Social Sciences in 1950, also from the Recife Faculty of Law.

He was Senator for Pernambuco (1962-1963) and a founder of the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party (PMDB), and its president in the 1970s.

Constitutionalist, jurist and sociologist-philosopher, Pinto Ferreira was Professor of Constitutional Law and Sociology at the Federal University of Pernambuco, at the Pernambuco Catholic University, at the Caruaru Faculty of Law and Rector of the University of the Agreste in Caruaru.
