Over a decade, Indonesia economic growth is rising gradually and has made remarkable progress across a broad range of economic and social dimensions. The number of HDI has been growing significantly since earlier 2000, followed by decrease of total amount of poverty from 40 to 8 percent1. Nevertheless, this number of growth has not been distributed equally, as in the past 20 years the disparity between the richest and the rest has increased faster than any other country in South East Asia2. These data shows that the development measured by a mere number in aggregate level is not reflecting an intrinsic growth. The Indicator of life decency should be portrayed by the condition where all people can have equal access to health, bodily integrity, bodily health, education, and justice system3. The last thing, access to justice, can be viewed as an essential element of development indicator because when the people have an equal access to justice they will be able to improve their functioning in society and enhance their power of choice. This is in line with ‘Capability Approach’4 which try to assess the development trough theorizing about basic social justice and opportunities to each person focusing on the distribution of freedom and choices for every people to live the life they value.
