Culture has broken through its classical demarcation and has moved into its new frontier of political and economical functions. As a storage of values, culture provides an essence to the community’s ideology and as a storage of human intelligence it performs as an economic resource. Culture recently functioned as source of human social belief and welfare. However, once the values extracted from the body of culture into a sets of values of belief or economic status, it would certainly transform itself into an independent individual nature. It mixes with the interest of human beings who adopted them and develops its own particular nature, including the way its work.

Ideology works through various forms of transformation such as way of life, theories, paradigms, concepts, principles, rules, regulations, standards, devices, and life styles. It absorbed into eternal content of any form of its transformation. Hence, its existence would be out of consciousness of the users. Under such transformation, ideology works in a silent, consistent, and persistent mode punching the fundamental pillars of the society or personality of any individuals. These new functions of culture would certainly offer a new fundamental challenge to the works of law on promoting and maximizing the benefit of such functions and in the same time preventing and controlling the detrimental impacts of the works of ideology.

 Udayana Journal of Law and Culture (UJLC) is hence created by reflecting the aforementioned phenomenon.
