This study tour will allow Swinburne Law School students to apply their legal education to interpreting our nearest northern neighbour – Indonesia. This is a foundation element of the Law School's Transnational Lawyering Program (Student Mobility).

Why go on this study tour?

In Indonesia you will learn about a rich legal and political environment and also gain an entrée into the broader Asian region. You will spend two weeks in country in Indonesia’s capital city of Jakarta and Yogyakarta, a sultanate and university town in Java.

In Jakarta, you will visit several research sites, including a transnational law firm and Mega Kuningan (a private commercial district in the heart of the city). While in Yogyakarta you will be able to investigate local lived realities through visits to historical sites, religious schools and local communities. The research sites will allow you to engage with transnational legal cultures in Jakarta and investigate local communities in Yogyakarta.
