Author(s): Ibnu Sina Chandranegara, Syaiful Bakhri

The adoption omnibus method into law in Indonesia still leaves problems. In addition to the technical issue of drafting laws that have not been regulated, the essential thing understands laws that use the omnibus method with the affected laws. This will impact the public's difficulty to read the law due to the difficulty of understanding the general method. This condition will reduce the accessibility of the law. This article aims to answer two problems; first, how is the compatibility of using the omnibus method into Indonesian legislation system?. Second, how consolidation deals with the volume of legislation and contributes to the accessibility of legislation?. This research uses normative research methods. Data analysis was carried out by systematizing the data. Subsequently, the data was used to translate the right concepts to calibrate the omnibus method in the law-making process and measuring the consolidation process after adopting omnibus methods to maintain the accessibility of legislation. The adoption omnibus method would be better if accompanied by the use of the consolidation method. Consolidation serves to improve the usability of laws, first as a prelude to codification and then to law reform. Sorting out outdated laws is the biggest issue with exaggerated legislation. We incorporate reforms by consolidation so that we have guidelines for updating.
