law enforcement

enforcement can be divided into two, namely:
(1) theoretical law enforcement, and
(2) practical law enforcement.
 The implementation of this law is in a legal forum called audtioria iuridica. In carrying out theoretical law, the bearers (functionaries) of the law carry out legal activities theoretically, for example being legal academics, legal scientists, legal theorists, or legal philosophers. 

Practical law enforcement activities mean legal activities in practice, including law formation activities (legislation), legal discovery (judication), or legal assistance (advocacy). 

Other activities can also be added here, namely the legal bureaucracy. There are two practical legal professions (legal practitioners), namely free professions and non-free professions. 
The definition of a free profession is a profession that works and earns income from professional relationships with clients, such as advocates and notaries. Non-free professions are professions that serve in public agencies and in private institutions. For example judges, prosecutors, and police, is a legal profession that is not free because it is appointed as a public official. There are also professions that are not free because of the employment relationship as ain-house lawyer at the company.

The term legal enforcement  is thus the same term as legal functionalization, namely all activities that refer to the existence of law and/or the enactment of the law. Activities regarding “the existence of the law” are perceived as activities relating to the law in a state of silence as available in various forms of legal sources  (law as it is in the books) , while activities concerning “the application of the law” are activities relating to the law in a state of movement or actually applies in the community  (law as it applies in the society). These two activities actually become the attention of all legal functionaries, both theoretical law bearers and practical law bearers. So, it cannot be said that theoretical law bearers only dwell on the issue of the existence of law, while practical law bearers focus on the issue of law enforcement. The bearer of theoretical law will also pay attention to the law when it applies in society. On the other hand, carrying out practical law will also observe how the law exists in the constellation of legal sources, whether in the form of laws, customs, doctrines, treaties, jurisprudence, and so on.

An academic who in fact bears the title as a theoretical law bearer, may not limit himself to merely being a researcher of written law exactly as it is in the laws and regulations. Academics can research how the laws and regulations apply in the field. This means that the legal meaning that is digested through legislation will become richer with the intake of empirical data in the field. This academic, of course, does not have to be a legal practitioner in order for him to gain this understanding.

On the other hand, a practical law bearer must also not only look at the applicable law, but also have to consult the law that is in the treasures of positive law. If there are differences in the meaning of the law (legal gaps) between law in practice and law in theory, then legal practitioners must look for alternative solutions to the problem. From these alternatives, one of them is then chosen as the final decision. The product of carrying out practical law is a decision (decision) . These demands are not imposed on the bearers of theoretical law.
