a. Background

Bali is an area with rich customary law values that need to be explored, fostered, and developed in order to enrich the national law. For those purposes, it is necessary to prepare experts in the field of law. This rationale is based on the contribution of the scholars of law in Bali belonging to the Association of Indonesian Law School Graduates or PERSAHI, Faculty of Law and Public Knowledge submitted to the Presidium of Udayana University.

The thoughts and proposals submitted by PERSAHI Indonesia in Bali Chapter receive positive responses and support from the Presidium of Udayana University when it had a meeting on Tuesday, 7 July 1964 in the boardroom of the Faculty of Letters of Udayana University. This meeting between the Presidium of Udayana University and the Deans of the Faculties of Udayana University decided to open the Faculty of Law and Public Knowledge at Udayana University starting from the 1964/1965 academic year.
