The rights obtained in the legal aid provided are the most important rights inherent in every Indonesian citizen. In the criminal law process in particular, the defendants cannot defend themselves in court. So in this case, the government has made a regulation regarding legal aid that is provided free of charge (Probono) and (Prodeo). pro deo is a series of legal action activities from probono, where all costs in each prodeo legal activity are borne directly by the state based on the provisions of the Budget of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Indonesia.

Starting from cases that are resolved, advocates must devote themselves to the community so that they demand to do work in the field of social and community activities.
