 Administrative Law: Law governing Public Administration


Public Administration is submitted to Administrative Law both when different bodies of the same are relating to each other and when relating with individual citizens

Main principles governing acts of Public Administration in Spain are:

-       Service to general objectives of State

-       Effectiveness, hierarchy, decentralization, unconcentration, coordination and rule of Law

Among their main duties:

- Objectiveness

- Effectiveness and efficiency

- Service to citizenship

- Good faith and legitimate trust

- Transparency and participation

Contencious administrative Courts apply Administrative Law

Administration is liable and citizens need to be compensated if they are damaged by Acts of the same unless force majeure events. Deadline to start the claim against the administration is of one year.
