The existence of a pluralistic law in the border area causes customary law communities who live and develop in the border area applying variety of laws. The concept of dualism is even deeper in the application of law as a reality that exists in border areas. The position of national law which is side by side with customary law apparently still has a gap which is entered by other countries' laws which are none other than neighboring countries. The existence of this plural law causes the disharmony of the legal regulations applied in the border area. The analysis shows that the dichotomy of regulations often conflicts and differences in the application of the law in each of the legal arrangements. Due to customary politics in the border areas are seeking for the truth in the application of the law. The position of national law does not guarantee the existence of legal arrangements in border areas because customary law in border areas has a strong position. National law is difficult to become a legal basis in border areas. However, the contradictions and differences in these three legal arrangements can actually be synergized, thus, thecontradictions and differences can also form a new law that is dynamic and appropriate, and does not change into a problem in the customary community.
