Indonesia Law Review (ILREV) is an initiative of Djokosoetono Research Center (DRC) Faculty of Law University of Indonesia. It aims primarily to facilitate scholarly and professional discussions over current developments on legal issues in Indonesia as well as to publish innovative legal researches concerning Indonesian laws and legal system. Published exclusively in English, the Review seeks to expand the boundaries of Indonesian legal discourses to access English-speaking contributors and readers all over the world. The Review, hence, welcomes contributions from international legal scholars and professionals as well as from representatives of courts, executive authorities, and agencies of development cooperation. The Review basically contains any topics concerning Indonesian laws and legal system. Novelty and recency of issues, however, is a priority in publishing. The range of contents covered by the Review spans from established legal scholarships and fields of law such as private laws and public laws which include constitutional and administrative law as well as criminal law, international laws concerning Indonesia, to various approaches to legal studies such as comparative law, law and economics, sociology of law and legal anthropology, and many others. Specialized legal studies concerning various aspects of life such as commercial and business laws, technology law, natural resources law and the like are also welcomed. A recommendation by the Editors on specific research issues to be covered in each volume may be made available to prospective contributors prior to publication of the volume in April, August and December.

Striving as a prominent legal journal platform, Indonesia Law Review has entered its ninth years and always try to provide diversified contents from both national and international authors. However, Indonesia Law Review still stick to its original intent: to provide insights for the development of Indonesian law.

This issue begins with the arguments presented by Osama Amayreh et al. regarding “A New Role of Causation Theory for Achieving Economic Contractual Equilibrium: Monitoring the Economic Equilibrium of the Contract”. This article tries to see the legal provisions of the causation using comparative analytical approach with the French judicial decisions to illustrate the Palestinian and Indonesian legislative deficiencies and the need to adopt the French judicial approach. Comparative analysis approach regarding the context of contract making is also used in Priskila Penasthika’s article entitled, “The Mandatory Use of National Language in Indonesia and Belgium: An Obstacle to International Contracting?”. This article used international private law as the lens.

Insights regarding business law in Indonesia are also discussed in Sugeng & Adi Rochman’s “Legal Protection for Recipients of Foreign Franchise Rights in Indonesia”. They emphasize the need to improve the protection of foreign franchise rights in Indonesia including its dispute resolution setting. Related to dispute resolution, M. Hadi Shubhan analyzes the theories, norms, and practice of simple evidence. Simple evidence is essential for bankruptcy petition application in Indonesia. Therefore, Shubhan crystallize his thought regarding the issue in an article entitled, “Rethinking Simple Evidence in Bankruptcy Petitions for Legal Certainty”.

This issue also provides the status quo discourse in criminal law and criminal procedural law realms. The discourse of criminal law can bee seen through an article entitled, “Analysis of Criminal Liability of Political Parties in Indonesia” by Nani Mulyati and Topo Santoso. This article shows the debate whether political parties are liable in Indonesia’s criminal law platform or not. Next, Aristo Pangaribuan and Kelly Manthovani tries to criticize the overcrowded prisons and the unnecessary deprivation and liberty and dignity for the violators Indonesia’s narcotics law. Their views are depicted in “Causes And Consequences of the War on Marijuana in Indonesia”. This article emphasizes the urgency to fix up the Indonesia’s regulation regarding narcotics law especially regarding the usage of marijuana.

In addition, we serve you a review on a book by Tim Lindsey and Simon Butt published by Oxford University Press in 2018. This book discusses about Indonesia’s legal system and its development through the years. Therefore this book title is “Indonesian Law”.

We hope that this issue reflects our effort to become a prominent law journal in national level and also international level.

Warm Regards,
