The existence of living law and ‘urf (habits which are normally and consistently conducted by members of society) are acknow-ledged in Indonesian legal system. In fact, the theory of living law and ‘urf have been adopted as legal reasoning for many laws or bills, such as the law number 23/2014 on local government and the law number 21/2008 on Shariah banking. It can bee seen that many legal decisions by courts judges also have their sources from living laws, such as what deals with criminal sanction, female reciepient of inheritance, the validaty of a merriage.
