Proceedings of the 1st International Conference on Indonesian Legal Studies (ICILS 2018)

The development of laws and regulations in Indonesia cannot be separated from development of the history of Indonesia and political and society growth in Indonesia. As one of big countries, Indonesia becomes one of important countries not only in Southeast Asia regional but also on an international level. Some scholars claimed that Indonesia has success applying democracy in the modern era, but in some certain circumstances they stressed that Indonesia failed to fulfill the meaning of justice through laws and regulations. The Empirical legal studies (ELS), socio-legal studies (SLS), and even critical legal studies (CLS), have become an interesting topic for scholars on interpreting law itself, and in Indonesian context, Indonesian Legal Studies will be more close and deep on interpreting, comparing, and even contesting laws and regulation from an Indonesian perspective. The contemporary issues on legal studies in Indonesia, between the concept and the idea of law establishment and development, and current solutions of problems happened will be more established if they are the results of discussions among researchers skilled and scholars in the International conference forum. The international conference is a discussion of scientific researchers, who come from various nations. Based on these reason, the Faculty of Law, Universitas Negeri Semarang organizes the 1st International Conference on Indonesian Legal Studies (ICILS 2018) in order to provide a discussion forum for law experts, government, scholars, professor, teachers, students, and organizations or other key stakeholders who have a relationship with law studies.
