To find out more fully, this paper will first analyze and criticize the concept of judges in the Draft Law on the Office of Judges, then provide the ideal concept of the position of judges as state officials in the ius constituendum in Indonesia. This study uses normative legal research with a statutory and conceptual approach. The results of the study are tThere are several crucial issues in the Draft Law on the Position of Judges, which among others are related to 1) The Government's Rejection of the Status of all Judges as State Officials; 2) Periodization of the position of Supreme Court Justices; 3) Sharing of Judges Recruitment Authority with the Judicial Commission; and 4) Reduction of Judge's Retirement Age.
