The development of life in society, especially in urban areas, is marked by technological advances. The existence of this technological advancement makes all things in all aspects of life more effective and efficient. One of the technological developments in the city today is the creation of the idea of "smart city" which is a city that has integrated information and communication technology in everyday human activities and aims to improve efficiency and improve services in the public sector and of course to improve welfare residents. In Indonesia, there are already several cities that implement the "smart city" idea, one of which is the city of Surabaya, which is a city that has "smart city" ties for 3 consecutive times. In the "smart city" applied by the City of Surabaya there are 6 important elements, namely government, living, economy, mobility, people and environment. However, in the implementation of "smart city" in several cities in Indonesia, there are still some obstacles, one of which is the lack of the creation of a rule of law as an umbrella for the application of the "smart city" idea. Because then, if there is no regulation, every city that wants to implement the "smart city" idea arises doubts. So, it is very necessary for the role of law to support the development of various new policies that will be implemented by a city, one of which is by giving birth to a legal product as an instrument in policy enforcement.
