Abstract

This paper aims to analyze the problems of the duties and authorities of law enforcers who are not dynamically ideal in carrying out the struggle for justice and legal certainty on the basis of legal equality. Meanwhile, law enforcers who are recognized in the state are police, prosecutors and judges, but the profession of Advocate is discredited by other law enforcers. An implementation result of this research is that in essence advocates can be said to be law enforcers such as prosecutors, police and judges, because advocates can carry out the role of legal consultation, legal aid, and legal assistance and can make legal findings. The analysis of this research will harmonize advocates who are equal, equal, and balanced with other law enforcers in a synergy and continuous manner in the struggle for justice and legal certainty. Advocates as one of the elements of law enforcement in criminal justice are one of the pillars in upholding the rule of law and human rights. As in the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia it clearly determines that the State of Indonesia is a rule of law. Efforts to realize the principles of a rule of law in social and state life, the role and function of Advocates as a free, independent, and responsible profession. The principle of rule of law emphasizes the guarantee of equality for everyone before the law (equality before the law).
