In this paper I will only discuss Javanese law in relation to the underlying ethics; how Javanese law preserved the existing institutions in its society, and how the Javanese society formulated the violations of the law, in connection with ideals and ideas that are often deeply rooted, so as not to be unable or difficult to formulate by the Javanese society itself. The scope of the issues discussed in this paper is ethics in Javanese culture; especially regarding ethics in Javanese Law. Social control provides parameters, guidelines or norms about what is wrong and what is right, as well as what is normal and what is abnormal. In other words, social control is intended to prevent the behaviour of citizens from being too distorted, so as to ensure an integration of life in the society that is considered normal. The purpose of all that is to maintain a balance between stability and change.
