Abstract: In general, this study aims to formulate (1) the process of forming legislation that involves community participation, and (2) the implications of making legal products (legislation) that do not involve community participation. Public participation in the formation of legislation is a manifestation of the implementation of the principle of transparency which is one of the principles in the formation of legislation that eventually will provide essential benefits in terms of the effectiveness of the enforcement of legislation in society. In a country that has adopted a representative system; public participation is still needed to embody good governance. Based on the results of research and discussion, the researchers conclude that: Firstly, the process of forming a law that involves community participation – namely in the stages of planning, drafting, discussion – can be through providing oral or written input. Secondly, if the process of forming legal products does not involve the public, it will result in lower effectiveness of public policies, low quality of the resulting legislation, reduced compliance with the implementation of this legislation voluntarily, and diminished public trust in the government.
