As the largest archipelagic country in the world with more than 17,00 islands, Indonesia has a unique social characteristic which influences the character of the prevailing law. In Indonesia, there are three prevailing and applicable laws in society. Long before Islam came to Indonesia, the Indonesian society has applied adat law (customary law). Till date, in some local communities, adat law is still applied in thir social living to resolve disputes in the community, such as family and inheritance cases. The 1945 Constitution recognises the existance of adat law, and courts may apply this law when the parties are the subject to the adat law.

Moslem as the largest population – more than 80%– has been shaping the pattern of the capable law in Indonesia with islamic law. The Islmaic law is applied to Islamic civil and business cases, such as family law, inheritance law and islamic finance cases (murabahah, mudharabah, musyarakah). The state also provides as special court for the islamic issues. Moreover, Indonesia also has a special court for the Islamic cases, the Pengadilan Agama (Islamic Court) has juridiction to adjudicate cases is Islamic issues. Morever, Indonesia also has a special province which applies Islamic law. For instance, Nagroe Aceh Darussalam has been given authority to apply Islamic law not only civil cases, but also in criminal cases.

Indonesia was the colony of the Netherlands East India administration, therefore, it inherits the civil law system. Indonesia recognizes legal condification both in substantive and procedural laws in its national law. In the first stage, the condification was designated to reduce legal pluralism in Indonesia. However, in reality, the legal pluralism in Indonesian remain exist. Legal pluralism becomes the unique identity for Indonesian legal system in which the there different regimes (adt law, Islamic law and national law) can be harmonized in one Indonesian legal system.
