how are the efforts of the agents of Islamic banks on Islamic economic dispute
resolution after the legalization of Perma Number 5 of 2016 about Islamic Economy
Judge Certification? This research is a field research that examines the opinions of the
agents of Islamic Banking on the Islamic economics judge certification as well as their
efforts in resolving economic disputes. This study used a qualitative approach because it
puts human being as the main subject of the study. As for method of analysis, the

The results of this research show that the agents of Islamic banking give consent
to the certification, as they argue that the certification is needed by an Islamic judge in
order to understand the Islamic banking more detail so the Islamic judge can give a fair
verdict for all parties. Meanwhile, the efforts that have been taken by the Islamic
banking party to complete the disputes are generally done through mediation. However,
there are still many Islamic banking doing litigation in District Court.
