LPP participants undertook an academic program which consisted of Indonesian language classes delivered by experienced lecturers from Pusat Pengajaran Bahasa (PPB) Atma Jaya University. The participants were also required to attend a series of law-related seminars. The speakers, ranging from high profile government officials, academics, and practitioners, gave students a glimpse of the Indonesian legal system in preparation for their placements. The seminar series covered a wide variety of topics including significant legal issues, human rights and ongoing case studies in Indonesia which were relevant to areas of future law reform and research collaboration between Australia and Indonesia.
LPP cohort had the opportunity to be involved in industry case studies during the program. The cohort were able to discuss in depth about “Death Penalty Controversies in Indonesia” with Dr Elisabeth Kramer from The University of Sydney and Mr Pan Mohamad Faiz from the Constitutional Court of Indonesia. Giving the insights of “The Legal and Regulatory Environment of doing business in Indonesia”, Pendleton & Co Pty Ltd, an international service company focused in oil and gas, resource, agriculture, infrastructure, healthcare and the public sector, hosted the participants to discuss about the legal challenges and prospects in establishing business in Indonesia.
We would like to congratulate all 31 students on their incredible work for Winter 2021 Virtual Law Professional Practicum. We wish all students the best in their future endeavours and we hope to see them all in Indonesia when international travels resume soon.
