The existence of a pararegal in Indonesia

(Bambang Pradityo) #1

Ministry of Law and Human Rights (Kemenkumham), namely Article 11 Permenkumham No. 1 of 2018 concerning Paralegal in the Provision of Legal Aid. In the a quo article it is stated that paralegals can provide legal assistance in litigation and non-litigation after being registered with a Legal Aid Provider and obtaining a basic level Paralegal training certificate. Article 11 Paralegals can provide legal assistance in litigation and non-litigation after being registered with a Legal Aid Provider and obtaining a basic level Paralegal training certificate. but it is very unfortunate that only for a period of several years the Supreme Court has ruled the matter and material test rights (pararegal related) Minister of Law and Human Rights Regulation No. 1 of 2018 concerning Statutes 11 and 12 in Permenkumham concerning Paralegals in Granting Legal Aid in contravention of Law Number 18 of 2003 concerning Advocates.

Article 11 in the regulation reads, Paralegals can provide Legal Aid in litigation and non-litigation after being registered with the Legal Aid Provider and obtaining a basic Paralegal training certificate.

While in Article 12 consists of three verses. The first paragraph states, the provision of legal assistance in litigation by Paralegal is carried out in the form of advocate assistance in the same scope of legal aid providers.

in Indonesia the role of pararegal is recognized in the legal aid law, it turns out that the law contradicts the law of advocates / lawyer , and it is disputed or sued by advocates / lawyer, and won whose contents invalidate the role of pararegal because exceed the authority as well as the role of the retailer
