About Lembaga Kajian dan Advokasi Independensi Peradilan (LeIP)

Lembaga Kajian dan Advokasi Independensi Peradilan (Indonesian Institute for Independent Judiciary) is a non-governmental organisation which since its establishment in 2000, has focused on judicial sector reform. LeIP’s work is founded on the belief that an independent, accountable and transparent judiciary must be achieved in partnership between civil society, the judiciary, government and other relevant stakeholders. Research based advocacy conducted by LeIP has made LeIP a critical partner of the Supreme Court of Indonesia and involved in many reform projects with the Supreme Court.

Noted for its development of Blueprints for the Supreme Court of Indonesia in 2003 and 2010, and the implementation of these recommendations, LeIP continues to contribute to judicial transparency through the development and implementation of policies and regulations on court transparency. In 2007 and 2011 LeIP were involved in drafting the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Decree regarding Information Disclosure in Court which granted the public ease of access to court information.

Since 2008, LeIP’s focus is on ensuring better consistency and quality of court decisions. LeIP conducted advocacy on establishment of the chamber system in the Supreme Court to enhance the consistency and quality of Supreme Court decisions. In 2011, the Supreme Court implemented the chamber system and LeIP remains involved in improving the implementation. LeIP has facilitated greater consistency by indexing the court decisions (especially Supreme Court decisions) in www.indekshukum.org. The purpose of this website is to grant ease of access to the public for searching for specific legal issues addressed in Supreme Court decisions.

Currently, LeIP is organising reform projects with funding from various organisations, such as Embassy of Netherlands, USAID, AusAID and the European Union. One of the current projects focuses on enhancing the handling of corruption cases through creating the corruption data warehouse for law enforcement officials and harmonising the handling of cases and information between the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) and the Attorney Generals Office (Kejaksaan Agung).
