Juridical Council of International Program (JCI) Faculty of Law Universitas Islam Indonesia held Webinar with the theme: Polemic on Issue of Leniency in Sentence Demand for Criminal Offender of Novel Baswedan, on Saturday, (27/06/2020). This webinar is for the response toward sentence demand by the public prosecutor on the case of first degree aggravated assault toward Novel Baswedan.

This webinar invites speakers who are criminal law experts, namely: Dr. Mahrus Ali, SH., MH., Ahmad Wirawan Adnan, SH., MH., and Muhammad Fatahillah Akbar, SH., LLM. Also, this webinar has been moderated by Sabiyllafitri Azzahra, Students and Chairwoman of Education and Advocacy Division of JCI.

Adnan Wirawan gave his material on the comparison of midwife legal arrangements in the United States. According to Adnan Wirawan, the Baswedan Novel case can be categorized as a first degree aggravated assault. According to him, first degree aggravated assault means as an intentional with plan to inflict great bodily harm to someone resulted in injury or permanent disfigurement. Adnan Wirawan discussed the parties that convened in the case. Scientifically, Adnan Wirawan criticized the act of appointing legal counsel for the defendants, Ronny Bugis and Rahmat Kadir, Inspector General Rudi Heriyanto. According to him, it’s because ethically an attorney was prohibited from carrying out his profession when he was serving as a state apparatus, while currently the Inspector General Rudi Heriyanto is serving as a police officer. Inspector General Rudi Heriyanto has also been an investigator in the search for suspects in cases of first degree aggravated assault toward Novel Baswedan since 2017. “How can we expect a fair trial, if the investigation just stands between ‘two legs’”, said Wirawan Adnan.

Meanwhile, according to Muhammad Fatahillah, this case cannot be separated from the issue of corruption eradication in Indonesia. According to Muhammad Fatahillah, this case delayed because the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) did not have the authority to. The government needs various steps to form a Joint Fact-Finding Team (TGPF) to conduct an investigation. According to Muhammad Fatahillah, the Novel Baswedan case is not the only case that occurs justice delay. There are many cases of this kind in Indonesia when it involves violations by police officers. Muhammad Fatahillah then gave his views on the application of independent institutions in other countries to deal with crimes committed by the police.

This event opened by the Secretary of International Undergraduate Program in Law, Dodik Setiawan Nur Heriyanto, SH., MH., LLM., Ph.D. During his opening speech, Dodik Setiawan gives his congratulation to JCI for its new management structure. “I hope, during this new structure, JCI can become much better as the representation of International Program of Faculty of Law’s Students”, he said.

Since the World Health Organization (WHO) announced its pandemic status on 11 March 2020, Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) has become a major challenge that must be addressed and resolved by all countries in the world. The rapid spread and distributed of this virus has led to the death of a large number of infected victims. On the other hand, the impact caused by Covid-19 is like a domino effect that not only attacks one sector but almost all sectors related to the needs of humanity around the world.

Responding to the situation, the Base for International Law and ASEAN Legal Studies (BILALS) in collaboration with Faculty of Law, Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII) held an online seminar on “New Global Governance System Post-Covid-19 Pandemic” on Thursday, 14 May 2020. The seminar also invited speakers from different countries, including Dr. Da Lu (China), Cristopher Cason JD (United States), Dodik Setiawan Nur Heriyanto S.H., M.H., LL.M., Ph.D., Gemilang Nur Mahardika S.H., LL.M., and Yaries Mahardika Putro S.H. (Indonesia). The seminar, moderated by Haekal Al Asyari S.H, opened with remarks made by Dodik, as Director of BILALS. In his remarks, he said, “These conditions should not prevent us from continuing to learn and spreading benefits the community, and hopefully this seminar can bring new knowledge and experience to the wider community,” Dodik said.

As the first speaker, Dr. Da Lu presented the theme of the presentation in the form of “Chinese Perspective: Timeline of the Pandemic and WHO Communication during Post-Covid-19.” In his presentation, he explained the development of Covid-19 in China, particularly in Wuhan, where he lived. ‘Beginning on January 23, 2020, Wuhan officially adopted a lock-down policy for its citizens. This policy was adopted to break the chain of distribution of Covid-19 in Wuhan. However, the implementation of this policy has an impact on the cessation of the economic wheels in Wuhan during the lock-down period and also, from the point of view of the Constitutional, the implementation of the state of emergency is often a half-way point”.

With the spread of Covid-19 to all countries around the world, not a few countries around the world are trying to hold China liable for this situation. Such as the United States, a few time ago, the United States openly asked for compensation for the losses suffered as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak in the country. However, it is undeniably true that this stance is more politicized than the legal facts that arise. “The stance of the U.S. government is nothing more than a political stance, and if the law is examined, the evidence will not be found,” said Christopher Cason.

In addition, on the international trade issue, Covid-19 has an impact on international trade transactions and global investment. Restrictions and even the closure of the territory of a country have almost stopped the transaction process in these two sectors. Therefore, in order to overcome this, Gemilang suggested that “it is very necessary to take a firm stance in a situation like this. There are only two options available in this situation, that is, to keep implementing the international trade law regime with all its limitations or to create a new legal regime in the field of international trade in order to adapt to current conditions”.

 

As a next speaker, Yaries stated that “With the large number of infected and dead victims caused by the Covid-19 in Europe, the EU Government agreed to disburse large funds in order to prevent this case. The funds are allocated, among others, to the needs of medical equipment, support funds to Member States, funding of vaccine research and other activities to break the chain of spread of this virus in Europe, “said Yaries.

As a closing presentation, the Director of BILALS presented a presentation entitled “WHO Governance during Post-Covid-19.” He explained that “A health policy reform is needed at both the international and national levels from all aspects affected by Covid-19. Policy reforms include the imposition of sanctions, punishment and rewards for each party in order to improve compliance with the policy, increase collaboration and cooperation to prevent incidents such as this, and increase the transparency of information provided by the WHO to all its Member States so that the country’s alertness process in dealing with the similar cases may be as high as possible.’

A total of 453 registered participants came from different regions of Indonesia and abroad with different professional backgrounds, such as students, lecturers, academics, civil servants, judges, notaries and lawyers.

The spread of pandemic decease, COVID-19, enforce all public and private sectors to prevent meetup and contact of mass people or public activity as well as Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII). As follow the Rector Circular Number 1048/Rek/10/SP/III/2020, all regular class are conducted by using online platforms. The online learning is now extended to 7th June 2020 as part of the tight mitigation prevention measures.

Based on Rector Circular, all of the lectures will be held online. So do the Faculty of Law, all regular lecture will be held using online platforms, like Zoom and Google Meet.

However, it is inevitably, the ability to master technology by some teaching staff and the lecturer is not evenly distributed. So, the Faculty of Law UII conducts a Workshop of Online Learning System by Utilizing Zoom and Google Hangout Meet Platform for lecturers. “Recently, lecturers at the Faculty of Law UII only familiar with google classroom, one of the online platforms from google besides the Google Hangout Meet. Therefore, training is needed to introduce the use of the application to lecturers and teaching staff to enhance the effectiveness of learning using Zoom”, said the Head of Committee, Dodik Setiawan Nur Heriyanto, SH., MH., LLM., Ph.D.

Due to the implementation of the Rector’s policy in the prevention of the COVID-19 at the university area, the tutorial was held by an online meeting using Zoom and Google Hangout Meeting platforms. “All of the participants are lecturers of the Faculty of Law. The content of the materials itself consists of how to manage Zoom and Google Hangout Meet for online lecture, and the student’s attendance status at google classroom”, said Dodik Setiawan.

The Workshop itself was held in 3 batches. The first batch was held on 19th March 2020 and attended by 17 participants. The second batch was held on 21st March 2020 and attended by 20 participants. While the third batch was held on 22nd March 2020 and attended by 14 participants. In the workshop, there were two speakers: Abdurahman Al-Faqih, SH., MA., LLM and Eko Riyadi, SH., MH. All the session was held online.

It seems the pandemic of COVID-19 will not stop the process of the lecture at the Faculty of Law of UII. “We do hope the pandemic will stop soon and all the lecture back to normal. But, for the mitigation, we really do our best to provides transfer of knowledge to our students in safety ways”, said Dodik Setiawan.

The advancement of industry and trade has demanded the business world in many sectors to continue to develop, one of which is the legal practitioners. The Corporate Lawyer profession is a ‘rising profession’ due to the development of the business world.

To answer the students’ thirst, the Faculty of Law at the Islamic University of Indonesia (UII) held a Guest Lecture entitled “Introducing on Corporate Lawyering”, on Thursday, March 12, 2020. The guest lecturers brought in were Corporate Lawyer practitioners from one of the national law firms, Assegaf Hamzah and Partners (AHP). They are Bono Daru Adji S.H., L.LM., and M. Insan Pratama, S.IP., S.H., L.LM., managing partners and senior associates at AHP.

The Guest Lecture was opened by Secretary of the International Undergraduate Program Faculty of Law UII, Dodik Setiawan Nur Heriyanto, S.H., M.H., L.LM., Ph.D. In his remarks, Dodik Setiawan emphasized to the participants to be able to take valuable learning from the event. Therefore, business competition has increasingly developed in the digital age. Whereas the young generation has many advantages because they are accustomed to digital technology in their daily lives.

This Guest Lecture Program: Introducing the Corporate Lawyering was moderated by Rahadian Diffaul Barraq Suwartono, SH. The event was held in the Audio Visual Room, Faculty of Law, Indonesian Islamic University and attended by students and lecturers.

In their material, Bono Daru Adji and Insan Pratama explained what corporate lawyers are. According to Bono, a lawyer currently does not merely work in court. But, there is also the profession of a lawyer who is in charge of carrying out many legal actions for companies, known as corporate lawyers. As a legal practitioner, a corporate lawyer must be broad-minded. “A corporate lawyer is partly an engineer, partly a banker and mostly a lawyer,” Insan explained. Meaning, a corporate lawyer must study various aspects of scientific disciplines, such as economics and engineering, in addition to legal disciplines. Because, a corporate lawyer is a determinant of whether a company’s business agreement will take place or not.

In addition to introducing the profession of corporate lawyers, Bono and Insan also introduced how a career in a law firm. Insan, who is a Faculty of Law UII alumnae, introduced the recruitment scheme in AHP. According to him, students should not only be satisfied with knowledge in the classroom but also must develop themselves. Social activities, verbal communication skills, and dexterity are the capital of a corporate lawyer.

The Guest Lecture program was attended by around 50 students and was broadcast live through the Faculty of Law UII’s YouTube channel. While lecture material can be accessed openly at the link http://bit.ly/CLUII.

Demonstrating a true commitment to the International Program’s goal of, “Nurturing Innovative Global Leaders,” a group of lecturers in the Law Faculty’s international program contributed to a successful workshop on creating a truly international environment for legal study.

The workshop, titled, “The Global Classroom,” challenged these lecturers to not only focus using the English language as the language of instruction, but to also expand their repertoire of pedagogy.  The seminar focused on the unique aspects of legal English as well as better integrating problem-based and case study instruction into their curriculum.     The group practiced the Socratic method of instruction, which uses questions to elicit critical thinking and interaction with students.  The participants in the workshop recognized the importance of nurturing these skills as the next generation faces the Industrial Revolution 4.0 and understands the importance of the IRAC legal analysis.

On the second day of the workshop, each participating lecturer showcased their skills by offering a microteaching session based on their particular area of law.  The microteaching sessions, exclusively in English were impressive and demonstrated the groups commitment to the state goal of a truly international learning environment.
