The development of law in the global sphere gives a lot of influence in many sectors, as well as in Indonesia. The dynamics of legal cases and their resolution gives the impression that society is developing so quickly and unexpectedly, while the law is lagging behind. In some cases, it is very apparent that the law has not been able to respond quickly and precisely to developments in the community, whereas on the one hand, legal certainty is one thing that is needed by the community. Journal of Law and Legal Reform, this first edition raises a special topic on "Problems and Challenges on Law Enforcement and Legal Reform in the Global Context" which is filled by ten legal articles from various experts in Indonesia. In this first edition, it generally does not discuss the development and discourse of legal cases and the development of the law itself, but we in this first edition present the best articles relating to law enforcement and legal reform. In this edition, we would like to thank the entire Editorial teams of the Journal of Law and Legal Reform, especially the Master of Laws Program, Universitas Negeri Semarang. We also extend our deepest gratitude to all of our Peers reviewers who have provided input to our journal, especially to Professor Frankie Young, Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa, Canada, who humbly and enthusiastically agreed to become an Associate Editor in this Journal. In the end, we also thank all the contributors in this first edition. Hopefully this journal provides scientific discourse and legal thinking.
