Abstract

The statutory regulation governing the border areas of Indonesia is Law Number 43 of 2008 concerning State Territory (State Gazette of the Republic of Indonesia of 2008 Number 177 and Supplement to State Gazette of the Republic of Indonesia Number 4925). The purpose of this paper is to determine and analyze the legal culture of the communities surrounding the border areas of the country. The theory used in this study is the Legal System theory from Lawrence M. Friedman which says that legal culture is defined as a number of ideas, values, expectations and attitudes towards law and legal institutions, some of which are public or some are in the public domain. This study uses a normative juridical research method using a statutory approach with a descriptive analytical research nature, which provides an overview of the legal culture of the community around the border area. This study analyzed the data obtained, then systematically compiled and analyzed the data qualitatively to clarify the problem being discussed. The legal culture of the communities surrounding the border of Indonesia and Malaysia, specifically in various villages in Ketungau Hulu and Ketungau Tengah Subdistricts, Sintang District, West Kalimantan Province is below standards.
