Abstract
The business among the Chinese community who are willing to choose a non-litigation forum in dispute resolution between them is a reflection of interpreting the rules of behavior as guidelines for the business community. This phenomenon must be perceived as an integrated structure to achieve unified social relations of the community. Among Chinese communities, especially in Pontianak, they tend to use the non-litigation forum in resolving their business disputes. The current study uses a qualitative method with a sociological juridical approach. The study found that most Chinese communities perceive justice as a sense of responsibility for mutual love (Cheng-lie). Every dispute must be resolved peacefully and mutually pleasant. The choice of an informal forum in realizing the resolution of business disputes among the Chinese business community indicates that the dominance of the legal tradition is more focused on the conception of harmony. For them, a good law in resolving disputes is not a state law (formal); however, it is the rule that has been integrated into the socio-cultural, which is a relationship among their community members based on the values and norms that are equally understood and lived in their traditions.
