The Indonesian Legal System

Indonesia’s legal system is unique because it reflects its pre-colonial, colonial and post-independence history and diversity.

As Indonesia continues to attract foreign investment, it is critically important that those doing business in the country understand Indonesia’s fundamental legal precepts.

Indonesia’s laws can be found in the Civil and Criminal Codes (which are predominantly based on the Dutch Civil Codes) and various laws and regulations as opposed to judge-made case law and the doctrine of binding precedent. Indonesian civil proceedings are not adversarial nor do they make use of the jury system.

The court system in Indonesia has four primary divisions: the general courts; the religious courts; the military courts and the administrative courts. Appeals may progress to the High Court and finally to the Supreme Court.

There are also government regulatory bodies that exercise quasi-judicial functions: for instance, the Anti-Monopoly Committee (known as KPPU.)

Members of the Judiciary are not appointed from the ranks of practising lawyers but rather are trained independently as specialists by the Supreme Court. Only lawyers who hold a licence as an ‘advokat’ can advise on Indonesian legal matters.
