The concept of access to justice basically focuses on two basic objectives of the existence of a legal system, namely: First, the legal system shall be accessible to everyone from all walks of life. Second, the legal system shall be able to make fair provisions and decisions to all groups, both individually and in group. The basic idea to be prioritized in this concept is to achieve social justice for citizens of all walks of life. In this connection, the right to legal aid is a small part of the access to justice. The fulfillment of the right to legal aid as part of access to justice means that the state shall use all its resources to realize the rights to progressive legal aid.
