UBAYA’s Faculty of Law is key bedrock of the university, having been established in 1968 along with the faculties of Pharmacy as well as Business and Economics. Programmes are offered at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The comprehensive curriculum is supported and prepared by a team of expert lecturers, researchers and renowned professionals from the legal industry. The course modules cover a variety of subject areas such as criminal law, international law, environmental law and tax law.
The faculty provides a solid grounding in the main areas of Indonesian law, and the skills required for legal research. Indonesia’s increasingly important international role thus provides higher education institutions the opportunity and the responsibility to produce adept graduates with an in-depth understanding of the country’s legal system. The Indonesian legal system is at the centre of bridging national and international businesses and trade. Therefore the study of law plays an integral role in ensuring the seamless interaction between local companies and overseas parties.
At UBAYA, students are equipped with strong competence in theories of law. The Faculty of Law deems it important for its students to have a proactive dialogue outside of classroom-based lectures. One of the ways this is achieved is through the faculty’s community service programme by providing free litigation and non-litigation services to the general public. UBAYA’s students participate to further hone in their soft skills in a learning environment that goes beyond the classroom, and developing their practical and analytical awareness of the complexity of Indonesia’s legal environment.
Through such initiatives, the Faculty of Law showcases the university’s dedication to creating an environment that nurtures critical thinking, and produce graduates that can impact upon Indonesia’s legal system, as the country becomes more interconnected to the world.
