This study aims to describe the customary court mechanisms conducted by Kerapatan Adat Nagari (KAN) within dispute resolution of Sako Pusako on Adat law community in Luhak Agam regency, West Sumatera Province. This study uses empirical legal research methods, namely looking at the law in the sense of reality and examining how the law works among environmental community. In addition, This research uses socio-legal approach, that is a study that sees the law through a merger between normative analysis (legal or juridical norms) and non-legal science approaches. Furthermore, Both those empirical and socio-legal methods hold in descriptive analysis.
