Post Reform Legal System Updates in Indonesia

H. Richard


Applicable law in Indonesia is a law or statutory regulation based on the ediological foundation and the Indonesian state constitution, namely Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution or laws built on creativity based on the taste and engineering of the nation itself. The development of the Indonesian Legal System since Indonesia's independence has been characterized by laws with a social control paradigm. Legislation with this social control paradigm is characteristic of a developing country

The principle of state responsibility in a philosophical basis is inseparable from the sovereignty that is absolutely owned by every entity known as the state. Sovereignty which has the root word daulat, is a form of supreme power by a certain country. Sovereignty is a very important thing in determining the existence of a country both in its continuity in conducting relations with other countries and in regulating citizens within the territory of the country concerned.

Development related to post-reform legal reform is not an "instant" process, meaning that it is a process that takes place very quickly. In building laws to create a legal reform order in Indonesia, a visionary is needed who determines the "soul / paradigm" and frees the mind from the shackles and normative dogmas that are responsive and progressive. The functional urgency of national law in its development takes into account political, sociological, philosophical, juridical, and practical-adaptive elements.
