Abstract: Nowadays, efforts to eradicate corruption become a global problem and not only as a national or regional issues. For a developing country like Indonesia has almost become a condition sine qua non. This research reviews the role of legal culture in formulating the legal awareness of the public in an effort to prevent corruption. This research is a sociolegal research leading to search ontologically. The type of research combines the empirical and normative studies. The outcomes of the research indicate that as an extraordinary crime, corruption cases should be carried out in an extraordinary way. The consequence, it is not only the financial loss of state but a crime that violates the rights of social and economic at large and systemic. Observing the criminal sanctions applicable in the law of corruption linked to the purpose of criminalization against perpetrators of corruption (corruptor), it can be seen that the essence of criminalization is intended as an attempt to eradicate corruption. But these efforts to date cannot be said to achieve its goals, because that looks just taking measure have not been effective to minimize corruption. Criminalization efforts have not actually created the state’s role in protecting people against the corruption.
