Program Details: 
  • Program Dates: 02 January – 15 February 2020
Piloting in 2018, ACICIS’ Law Professional Practicum Program will be a six-week study program, undertaken in Jakarta. The program, hosted by Atma Jaya Catholic University will consist of an initial two weeks of intensive Indonesian language instruction and English language lectures by local legal practitioners and experts in the field of law, followed by a four-week supervised practicum placement with a local or international legal firm, government authority or non-government organisation (NGO).

The program will be designed to cater for students with no existing Indonesian language skills. Candidates with existing language skills will, however, be welcome.
Indonesia’s legal system is characterised by complexity and a remarkable level of pluralism. Within the nation there are multiple and overlapping bodies of law including colonial, national, Islamic, and customary law, that apply to particular groups and govern particular realms of social, cultural, and economic activity in Indonesia.

With Indonesia and Australia sharing extensive maritime boundaries, matters of international law, national sovereignty, security and transnational law-enforcement remain prevalent issues within the Australia-Indonesia bilateral relationship. Moreover, with increasingly important commercial, trade and tourism links between Australia and Indonesia, understanding the legal system of Australia’s northern neighbour has never been more important.

On ACICIS’ Law Professional Practicum students will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of and experience the uniqueness of the Indonesian legal system and to add an international perspective to their degree.
