|Indonesian Law - JURD7539|
The course provides an introduction to the Indonesian legal system: its modern form based in civil law and implications for legal pluralism that arise from co-existing religious law and Adat law (or customary) law. Recent developments and reforms in Indonesian law, focussing on the responses to political, social and cultural change since 1997, will be considered. The course will take a thematic approach by looking at constitutional and human rights law, changes brought by decentralisation, Indonesian law making style and form, and the functioning of the court system. Legal subject areas covered will include natural resources management and environmental law, land law, investment law, commercial law, and the law of personal status.
