Indonesia Legal System

Civil Law system at Indonesia is a unique amalgamation of the Roman Dutch Law, Local Norm and Customary Law (Norma and Adat) and also Religious Law, a product of slow and delicate combination process that takes time for hundreds of years. Following its independence in 1945, Indonesia began to form its own modern Indonesian Law by pertaining laws from the colonial Dutch and formulating new laws adjusting to Indonesia rapid growth propelled by its National Development Plan. The new Laws were promulgated to suit its developing geopolitical requirements and socio-cultural aspects. This is one of the reasons why Indonesia’s legal environment is unique when compared with other countries in region.
