Abstract

'Quid leges sine moribus' Where would we be without morality if we had laws? The interpretation of that adagio theology presumes that to fulfil one's commitment to the All-Powerful God, one must uphold the law honestly and justly. Because the law will be completely worthless if morals do not accompany it, morality is the driving force behind the fight against corruption's domination. In investigating instances of corruption and the administration of justice in Indonesia, this article aims to investigate the tensions that arise between law and morality. The research will take a normative approach, supported by secondary data, conceptual work, and law philosophy work. Quantitative research will be done on the case to determine whether there is a connection between law and morality in the context of law enforcement against corruption.
