Sementara itu Dekan Fakultas Hukum UEU, Wasis Susetio SH., MH dalam kata sambutannya mengatakan tahun 2015 akan ada ASEAN Economic Community merupakan langkah yang sangat penting bagi Indonesia, karena akan menjadi komunitas ekonomi ASEAN untuk itu di butuhkan dari berbagai aspek.

Background

The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) is a community that works together to extend and to broaden the integrated economy among ASEAN countries in the Southeast Asia region.  The aim of establishing AEC is to: (1) develop production-base countries; (2) develop a more dynamic region; (3) develop a competitive single market; (4) have an equivalent level of development; (5) seek an accelerated economic integration among its members.  The implementation will be done by considering the different levels of development of its members.

The establishment of AEC will consequently trigger developments in other fields, including the field of legal education. Therefore, each ASEAN country is expected to prepare its infrastructure, as well as its human resources development. And ASEAN’s legal education will be established in accordance to the requirements needed by AEC.

One simple hope is that the legal professionals in ASEAN who hold legal education backgrounds from  ASEAN universities may fairly compete with their other ASEAN peers who obtained their legal education backgrounds from other universities outside of ASEAN countries.
