University is a place to create graduates that are able to accommodate the society requirements related to socie1al needs, industrial needs, and professional needs. To accommodate those requirements graduates have to have intelligence, responsibilities, and be able to work on their tasks in particular fields. In the framework of forming curriculum based on competency in effort to produce the graduates, innovation is needed in learning process. The conventional/earning process using one-way method could not promote students to be more proactive and have creative thinking. Regarding that, a new paradigm is needed in learning process. It consists of various activities strategic where students actively involved, teacher act as a facilitator and motivator, two-ways communication is essential. It also requires various activities that have to be done by students to encourage them explaining their opinion. Therefore a new learning process has to be formed and so called Activity Based Learning where the thinking process comprises learning outcomes, instructional methods and assessment system. • Particularly in legal education, where the law is an instrument that is used to change the society (law as a tool of social engineering), the law could be enforced and implemented by graduates in their life. There is characteristic distinguishing in law faculty learning process, which is more focused on case study. Activity Based Learning is important to improving the quality of law students and the positive aspects of students like communication skill; self-confidence; ability to explore new findings. Law faculty of University of Surabaya has been three years in applying Activity Based Learning as a learning process and it brings progressing and positive impact.
