ABOUT ALSA

THE OPINION

The opinions:

My 1st impression about ALSA wasn’t

when I entered FHUI, it was the time when I was still in high school. In 2005, I participated in ALSA E-Comp in debate. At that time, before the competition begun, one of our team coaches was the former Director of ALSA, so my teammates and I usually had practices at FHUI in front of ALSA room. That time, what I saw wasn’t an organization, but a family that works together prepared for E-Comp. During the competition, I learned so many things and got a lot of benefits. I got new friends and new experiences. In 2006, I entered FHUI and ALSA was the first organization that I joined. The reason was, I already know a little about ALSA, and I was so sure that ALSA would be a great place for me to learn, turns out I wasn’t wrong. ALSA has so many great programs, both internal and external. Ecomp, ALSA Care, also all

of the seminars & workshops, and many more. I become a part of the committee in some events or should I say “family” and from those events I learned how to work together, but still have fun. Joined ALSA is one of the many things that I won’t regret - Michelle Manuhutu (FH UI ‘ 2006)

A

LSA, simple yet intriguing words. To me ALSA means a group of people, who studies about law, who speaks with law as their basis, and who enforce the law. ALSA means a lot to me, from OLMA to E-COMP and especially ADC. I still remember when I’m still a JC (Junior Associates), everything likes debating is new to me. Later when I’m in ADC I participated a quite number of debating competition, and I’m grateful because ALSA always support me from right behind me, that’s why ADC can win, thanks ALSA. Then OLMA happens, it is very fun actually in OLMA, I learn how to

be leader not a follower, learn to sharpen up my dreams, it is a very intoxicating moment. Without further a due, E-COMP should be the greatest moment to liven up what I learn from ALSA. As a committee of ALSA E-COMP of 2007-2008, I think that we are not only learning English but also about teamwork and responsibility. So in the end, what is ALSA for me? Everyone has a different meaning, it is not only stand of Asian Law Student Associates but I think everyone as the proud member of ALSA have their own likeness to ALSA, to me ALSA is the place where I changed to be responsible, to be a leader. - Reza Wicaksana (FH UI 2007)

W

hen I first become student at Faculty of Law University of Indonesia, ALSA is the only one I knew as the biggest organization. ALSA in my opinion is such a large n full of well-known-people on it. When u

joined ALSA, you’ll automatically become a member in communities which expand your intercourse and make a vast networking. My most favorite ALSA programs, first is ALSA care. ALSA care indicates that ALSA also concern about our environment and other people who have difficult live around us. Then, the workshops and seminars which held by ALSA are really high qualities one. It helps me much related to my studies in PK 4. The last and the best one is ALSA’s English Competition, which well known as E-Comp. While Ecomp was held, all of students from high school to university students, alumnis, and other important people could attend this program. That’s why I think E-comp has an important role in recognizing Faculty of Law University of Indonesia to wide societies. - Elvino Martinus (FH UI 2006)

EXCLUSIVE

FIROZ GAFAR

WHO IS HE Firoz Gafar, is one of Indonesia’s brightest. He was the first to spark the idea to form what we know now as ALSA. It was in the at the 2nd National Conference of ISMAHI then he was appointed as the Secretary Gen-

Firoz Gafar, one of the young intellectual students who established Asian Law Students’ Association, interviewed to get a glimpse of ALSA from his side of the story: 1. As ALSA is celebrating its 20th years co-existing among us, what do you think about the organization nowadays? ALSA as the solid-institution had gained the global society, not merely in the regional due to the idea to establish ALSA as an international institution. Related to global competition without neglecting global interests, we look forward that ALSA has to compete in international round.

eral of ISMAHI. With that power than he organized to make the birth of ALSA to come true. At that moment he was helped by a few parties to establish the birth of ALSA. The birth of ALSA was really a big thing at the time as it was really as it was for example supported by Prof Dr Sujudi (Rektor

2. So, if one of ALSA’s visions is to compete in global society, then what is the top priority thing-to-do to achieve that vision? Generally, when we organize an institution, there must be obstructions from several countries, inescapable restraints, and others. We still have much opportunity, such as student exchange, that is very essential to learn profoundly concerning international inevitability by sharing many ideas to achieve those we found for. The leaders who organize an institution will be more competitive and effective by doing a student exchange to another country since having great background and experiences will create the future great man.

UI), and Mr Drs Enoch Markum, (leader of Indonesian DEPDIKNAS master education), Dr Gordon Hein (the representative of Asia foundation). The biggest attention for young generation original idea, was given by Mr Ir. Akbar Tanjung (The Ministry of Youth and Sport Affair), who eager to made a grand celebration for all the participants. All this lead to the birth of ALSA which we now know, Firoz Gafar is now known as one of the founding fathers of ALSA. Now he has a Curator Office and owns the HKGM & Partners Law Firm at Jakarta. Without him here wont be ALSA like we know it now. Thank You Firoz Gafar!!!

3. What is the real activity to achieve those visions and missions that all founders of ALSA have formulated? In minimum efforts, the members shall persistently do many international excursions which fit into its visions and missions. 4. What does make you proud of being one of ALSA founders or ALSA members? ALSA is a concurrent idea. To establish this institution, not merely the students’ effort that helped us, there also are ISMAHI, the dean, friends as such Reksodiputro, Bang Akbar Tanjung, Bang Ismail Salih, Bang Teuku Radi, lecturers such as Prof. Singgih, and others. So, mentioned as the founders have the very large effect since ALSA was built by concurrent efforts. Moreover, being an ALSA member means have right to become a development agent. 5. Do you think that ALSA activities nowadays are helping to maintain those vision and mission? The most important thing to do to maintain the visions and missions of ALSA is not about the quantity, but about keeping the quality. So, the students have an obligation to provide maximal efforts by focus on developing this institution by offering the information to surrounding society and also enhancing general knowledge by exchanging information toward state institutions so it will be useful to be implemented for public’s interests. However, for real implementation, each member has to comprehend its obligations as a result of jobs distribution. (ND)

LOCAL EVENT GATHERING

Arisan ALSA

which familiarly known as SALSA, is one of the Department of ALSA Gathering’s programs. SALSA’s main purpose is to gather the Board of ALSA LC UI and make them closer one to another so the Board of ALSA LC UI can work as a solid team and also feel like they are one big family here in ALSA LC UI. However, this event is not only set up for the board, but also for all the members of ALSA LC UI.

We have kind of

to know deeper about the other members of ALSA. There’s no senior-junior. We talked to each other like close friends or you can say, like a very big family. One day, we got coffee from Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam which was a gift from our friends that attended ALSA National Seminar and Workshop at Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam on November 2008. Aceh Coffee has a really nice taste and we had a quality coffee time together in ALSA room. We also heard so many wonderful and mesmerizing stories about The ALSA National Seminar and Workshop and about Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam itself. From the stories above, you all can see that we, as in the participants of SALSA, already had fun together and knew each other closer thanbefore, so don’t hesitate to join SALSA! (MKA)
