    new nicknames where you have to call your seniors at FHUI

    4. car?!Are new students allowed to bring car to FHUI? Yes! But pay attention, you are prohibited

    to park at FHUI parking lot simply because the space is not big enough to accommodate

    the entire campus of FHUI. So, if you plan on bringing cars the campus it is recommended

    to park it outside FHUI and the nearest space is at Masjid Universitas Indonesia (MUI)

    5. organization Life is too short to be spending all your time on studying. Join some organizations!

    Be a part of something to add more fun to your days in FHUI. You can always try out ALSA!

    For Law Students in General1. Planning!Start planning on your future in legal career by choosing vocational program or start making a 5 year plan

    of your life. If you really want to succeed, you have to know what you want to do and what will you do

    2. understand, not memorize!It is inevitable for law students to have tons of reading materials on their hands.

    Most peoples approach to overcome this is by memorizing them. This method is not

    going to make you a straight A student. Rather than memorizing, try to understand

    the concept. By doing that, youre giving a huge favor for yourself and your brain!

    3. bulletin board As a university student, there are many opportunities that will be offered to you. Finding

    the right information is an important step to grasp these opportunities. Information

    about competitions, internship at a law firm, and scholarships are published in the

    bulletin board. Make sure you dont miss them by paying attention to the board!

    What is SIAK WAR? SIAK War will determine your future in the faculty. You will have to

    sit for 12 hours in front of your computer with the internet on to be able to access SIAK,

    so you could fill your course with your chosen lecturer. Or else you will have to spend

    the rest of your semester with an undesired lecturer. Even worse, you might have to wait

    for another semester to take that class, because the quota of the class is already full.

  • legal movies

    Watching List for Law Students Learning doesnt always have to be in a classroom, where teachers or professors are the ones who give

    you information. In fact, there are other learning methods that are more amusing and exciting. Movies

    not only amuse and excite, but also educate and inform. After all, what better way to learn about legal

    ideas and concept than through movies! Here is a list of four movie titles for you to watch on your spare

    time. Watch and rate it yourself! In the end, do tell us which one of these is your absolute favorite.

    1. tO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

    We know what youre thinking, and yes it is a black and white movie. Dont be fooled at first glance. It might

    seem too dated for your taste, but you know what they say, the older the better. To Kill a Mockingbird is a

    timeless classic that continues to speak to new generations. The movie it self is an adaptation of a book with

    the same title, its story revolves around Atticus Finch, a lawyer in the Depression-era South, who defends a

    black man against an undeserved rape charge, and his kids against prejudice. To Kill a Mockingbird is easily

    placed top on most of Greatest Legal Movies lists, and can you blame it? Interested? Watch it for yourself!

    lawyer, Lt. Daniel Kaffee, who is assigned to defend two Marines accused of the murder of fellow leatherneck

    at the U.S Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. A Few Good Men has the most popular courtroom scenes ever

    Philadephia is considered to be one of the greatest legal movies of all time. It ranked #8 on the Aba Journals

    famous Top 25 Legal Movies list. It starred Tom Hanks and Denzel Washinton as two competing lawyers who

    join forces to sue a prestigious law firm for AIDS discrimination. More than a decade after AIDS was first

    identified as a disease, Philadelphia marks the first time Hollywood has risked a big-budget film on the subject.

    I rate this :4. my cousin vinny

    What would you do if you get framed for a murder on your way to college? Calling a cousin who graduated from

    law school six years ago, who only recently managed to pass the bar exam on his sixth try would definitely be

    your last option. Well, thats what William and Stanley did in My Cousin Vinny. It is amusing to see Vinny as an

    attorney who is working on his very first case. His unique style in court is downright funny by how he treated

    the judge and delivered his opening argument. The movie packs in cinemas briefiest opening argument such

    as Everthing that guy just said is a bullshit, its best ever introduction to the rules of criminal procedure.

    Legal TV Shows

    legal tv shows

    Other than movies, TV shows can certainly be another way for you to have a peek at what youre currently

    studying right now, which is law. Wouldnt it be nice to spend hours in front of your TV, watching legal

    TV shows while not being so guilty? Since youre not just entertaining yourself, but also enriching

    your knowledge of law. Heres a list of six legal TV Shows for you to watch and rate it for your self!

    1. Law and OrderLaw & Order is one of the longest running TV drama series ever. Law &

    Order actually uses real case law to prosecute their cases and make real

    legal arguments. They say that you cant fully appreciate how good Law &

    Order is unless youve attended law school. In fact, if you watch enough Law

    & Order, you could probably pass a criminal procedure class in law school.

    I rate this : 2. L.A Law L.A Law inspired nearly all of the current lawyer shows. It was the first

    TV Show to recognize that law is a business, practiced for profit in large

    firms. Arguably no drama did as good a job tackling issues such as race,

    gay rights, and the drug war during the last 80s and early 90s. Though the

    show may seem dated for todays law students, the show is still very funny

    and well acted. L.A Law is considered as one of the greatest legal TV shows.

    : I rate this3. Boston LegalBoston Legal is actually a spin-off of The Practice. The show

    revolves around the Boston litigation law firm of Crane, Poole,

    and Schmidt. It portrays two eccentric and flawed attorneys.

    4. Suits While running from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross, a brilliant young college-

    dropout slips into a job interview with one of New Yorks best legal closers,

    Harvey Specter. Harvey takes a gamble by hiring Mike on the spot after he

    recognizes his raw talent and photographic memory. Mike and Harvey are

    a winning team. Even though Mike is a genius, he still has a lot to learn about

    the law. And while Harvey may seem like an emotionless, cold-blooded shark,

    Mike Ross will help remind Harvey that everything is not just about winning.

    I rate this :

    5. Ally McBealAlly McBeal was goofy, but downright funny. The show was a slapstick soap

    opera whose law office served as a setting for anorexic fashion, sex-driven

    dialogue and never ending cycle of relationships. Who could forget the remote

    toilet flusher for the unisex bathroom of the dancing babies that haunted Ally?

    : I rate this6. The Practice Created by the same person who developed Ally McBeal, The Practice had its

    share of glory for eight seasons from 1997 to 2004. The Practice focused on

    the law firm of Robert Donnel and Associates. The first three seasons honestly

    represent the pinnacle of legal dramas of television. The writing for this show is

    consistently funny and thought provoking, even if you find yourself disagreeing

    with half of the shows closing argument. You might not like the idea of a TV

    Show that idealize trial attorneys, which are people who defend murderers,

    rapist, and scumbags for money, but The Practice is too entertaining to miss.

    TALK WITH

    ALUMNI

    FERDY PRAWIRAKUSU

    MAH

    Hello Bang Ferdy! First of all, congratulations

    for your recent graduation and your new

    job! We from ALSA are very proud of your

    achievement as the former Director of ALSA

    LC UI! However, we as the current member of

    ALSA as well as student of FHUI are curious of

    how life is after the exams, the all-nighters,

    and the fun events. As a recent graduate, how

    does work life differ from school life?

    Thank you for the greetings, ALSA! Personally,

    the biggest difference that I experience is the

    degree of responsibility that I hold against

    other people. During university, you are only

    responsible to yourself. When you skip classes

    or not get your homework done, the one who

    will feel the impact of your actions is yourself.

    However, in work life, I am responsible to

    my partners for my coworkers will feel the

    impacts of all my actions. Here, I realize I

    have been given a very big responsibility

    What soft skill did you gain in ALSA that is

    most advantageous for your work?

    I believe there are 2 most important soft skills

    that I gained in ALSA, which are how to work in

    a chain of command and how to work with new

    people. In law firms, there is a structure much

    like the one in ALSA, where staff will submit to

    their manager and the manager will report to

    the BODs. In ALSA also, I learned to work with

    new people, and even people I don't like to

    begin with, but because I have experienced

    these I know how to handle it now, in work life,

    and it is very helpful for me.

    Alumni Profile

    What skills do you still need to develop during

    your career that you have not gain during

    university?

    I believe it would be analytical skill. During

    university, we are often forced to memorize

    instead of analyze, but in practice we do not

    have to memorize everything. Because we are

    used to memorize during university, we are most

    likely to be textbook oriented and lack the skill

    to solve the cases we face. Therefore, I personally

    feel I still need to develop this one skill of mine.

    There are other options after graduation

    instead of directly working, such as taking

    master degree or traveling the world. Why

    did you choose to work instead of doing those

    other possible options?

    I can more or less say my decision of working

    right after graduation was accidental. I joined a

    workshop and at first got a chance for internship,

    and then slowly became a permanent partner.

    Although as a result I did not have the chance

    to enjoy holiday after graduation like most of

    my friends, I believe such big opportunity does

    not come twice, therefore after I thought it over

    and consulted with my family, I took the offer. I

    believe I made the right decision for the long run.

    There are myths about how laborious being a

    lawyer is, how tiring the work is that you have

    no time to sleep, and others negative talks.

    How do you justify these rumors?

    To be honest, its true; the work will take over

    your life. However do not fear the responsibility

    that will be burdened to you because once

    you are committed to your job, anything

    can be done. It is true that there will be

    difficulties to cope up when you

    only started working, but the key is

    always on time management. With

    proper self-indulgence, you will

    still be able to enjoy your life. my

    coworkers will feel the impacts of

    all my actions. Here, I realize I have

    been given a very big responsibility in

    comparison to during university life.

    Lastly, any message for the new

    students of FHUI and current ALSA

    members regarding the transition

    from university to working

    world?doing those other possible

    options?

    I believe you made a great decision

    if you choose to join ALSA, because

    there are a lot of advantages that you

    will gain, whether knowledge-wise,

    organization-wise, or social-wise. I have

    experienced it myself and all the things

    I gained from ALSA were not in vain; it is

    very rewarding. However, you can only

    feel the maximum advantage if you also

    put maximum effort in what you do.

    you can only feel the maxadvantage ifyou also put max effort in what youdo "

  • How to Write a good essay

    1. A Suitable Topic Find a suitable topic which you feel strongly about and have sufficient access to the

    necessary resources. In order to do this, it is recommended that you choose an area

    of concentration that is of interest to you and then narrow it down to a specific issue.

    2. ResearchStart researching on three to four literary works by credible authors on the

    subject. Make sure to read thoroughly, while still being focused on your topic.

    3. Concrete Thesis StatementAs to the more technical aspect of writing the essay, always make sure to have

    a concrete thesis statement that will prove your argument in the beginning of

    the essay. A persuasive thesis statement will prevent you from going off-topic.

    The thesis statement should be put in the last sentence of the first paragraph.

    4. Relevant Evidence As to the more technical aspect of writing the essay, always make sure to have

    a concrete thesis statement that will prove your argument in the beginning of

    the essay. A persuasive thesis statement will prevent you from going off-topic.

    The thesis statement should be put in the last sentence of the first paragraph.

    5. The Scope of The EssayThe scope of the essay must also be paid careful attention to. If we are not careful,

    we may end up discussing a wider scope with less substance rather than a smaller

    scope with large substance. This is where structuring your essay helps. The standard

    essay has three major points, with an introductory and a concluding paragraph.

    6. Be Clear Finally, for those who tend to use complicated jargon, which at times may not even fit into

    context; it is wise to be clear rather than clever. Nevertheless, if your intention is to impress the

    reader as opposed to actually displaying genuine knowledge, you should refrain from doing so.
