Presence of foreign elements in international contracts is a this characteristic of it’s contracts. On the other hand, the principle of nationality applies, which requires a person to be bound by his own national law, which is the reason for research to find the form of legal protection and the application of the principle of good faith as an effort to protect the parties in international contracts. This research is normative in nature, which uses a theoretical approach and analytical methods which are included in the discipline of dogmatic law. The results show that the form of legal protection in international contracts is carried out by harmonizing two different legal systems through the ratification of international conventions and the application of its principle as an effort to protect the parties by interpreting good faith as honesty in business conduct, transactions and honesty in facts and respect for reasonable trade standards.
