This article aims to analyze the trajectory of legal struggle for agrarian justice in contemporary Indonesia. Author identifies several currents of legal advocacy in agrarian activism in Indonesia. First position is the liberal view of the rule of law. The second position is the structural approach to legal advocacy, promoted by the next generations of activist lawyers and advocates who integrate class analysis and community organizing in their work. The third strand is what author would call as the populist view of legal advocacy that sees legal struggle as a part of the broader class-based or populist politics.
