Law Number 6/2014 on Village has explicitly stated that to strengthen village development, rural areas area development should also be well facilitated. This law is intended to accelerate and improve the community-based service, development, and empowerment quality. We argue that the success of community-based rural area development is due to the legal and institutional aspects. The research method applied a normative juridical study using legislation and legal documents as well as research reports. To contextualize our study, we used focus group discussion with the involving stakeholders to deepen the research analyses. Our study shows that the legal aspects do not only include principles and norms, but also institutions, processes, and procedures to realize the law. The relationship between law and institution must be interpreted as an authority which formulation is in legislation. The function of institution is to realize what has become the authoritative content of institution.
