The course provides an introduction to the Indonesian legal system: its modern form based within the civil law tradition and implications for legal pluralism that arise from co-existing Shariah law and Adat (customary) law. Recent developments and reforms in response to political, social and cultural change since 1997 will be covered. The course will take a thematic approach by considering issues within democratisation, decentralisation, Indonesian law-making style and form, and the court system. Legal subject areas will include constitutional law, investment law, commercial law, natural resources management, environmental law, land law, and human rights.
