LAWmotion #21 – Small Claims Court

Justice delayed is justice denied. That assumption is often discussed with access to justice. Access to justice is given, so people can solve the problem through legal mechanisms. But there are still many complaints against the practice of civil law in court during this and people avoid the settlement of civil disputes in court, especially a dispute with a small value. Indonesian Supreme Court (MA) has made the Small Claims Court that the process is very simple, fast, and low-light.

This regulation is a regulation of the Supreme Court (PERMA) Number 2 in 2015 about Small Claims Court . Small Claims Court is a simplification of the mechanisms and procedures for the settlement of civil matters.
