On that occasion, he said that the Covid-19 Pandemic has changed human life, especially in the term of law and education. “Through this theme, we as academicians will try to formulate our ideas on how the looks of law and education in 2021. As we know, last year we faced the same problems related to the impact of Covid-19 which also affected our daily life,” as he said.
Sukadi also conveyed his high appreciation to the keynote speakers and all of the speakers, all of whom were academicians in the field of education and law from various universities in Indonesia.

The event began with the presentation of material from the Keynote Speaker, Prof. Dr. I Wayan Lasmawan, M.Pd. who delivered the material “The Looks of Law and Education in Indonesia in 2021”. Lasmawan began his presentation by conveying the 5 characteristics of a State Law. As an academic and education expert, Lasmawan provided more insight into educational practice. He said, “Before the Pandemic, there were already several problems in educational practice, such as unequal distribution of access in all regions, unequal availability of human resources, insufficient funding allocations in the education sector, and our education management system was not yet integrated”.
In his presentation, Lasmawan conveyed the look of education seen from an academic view. “I conclude from academician views that our education system in this pandemic era has three 3 different aspects, namely from its look, our education systems are still fine but only a little ‘haggard’, its facial expressions that tend to be quiet due to decreased immunity as there are quite a lot of problems faced. In terms of expectations, we still have a great hope to be better but it needs more integrated synergy between parents, students, government and teachers”. Lasmawan also invited the public to be wiser in looking at the objects around us about how we give value to the context of the application of law and educational practice.
In this webinar also presented 8 speakers from various universities, such as Ruslan, S.Pd., M.Ed. (Syiah Kuala Aceh University), Dr. I Nengah Suastika, M.Pd.
