The impact of technological advances in law is overwhelming, on one side the law needs to predict and anticipate changes in human behavior due to the use of technology, while on the other side the law also needs to utilize technology as a means that can be used to achieve the aims and objectives of the law. The problem is that law and technology do not originate from the same conception. So that maximizing the role of technology to accelerate the occurrence of social engineering in order that changes that occur in society can be controlled and run in an orderly manner, to create the national goals of a country is a serious challenge. Increasing the role of technology in the development of the concept of law as a tool of social engineering is carried out by realizing the convergence of technology and law in various fields of law, both in the normative and practical dimensions.
