Administrative Law

Administrative Law

Administrative law in Spain regulates the work of public bodies and public officials, defines the conditions and manner in which they perform their functions and includes the rules and regulations that govern their interactions with citizens (in the broadest sense of the word). In simple terms, administrative law is responsible for ensuring that all public bodies and officials duly fulfil their official duties and, when dealing with private persons, comply with all instructions and procedures prescribed by law and comply with all formalities.

It is well known that no state machinery works perfectly, so mistakes and violations in this area are quite frequent. There are many reasons for this. It may be a human factor: inattention, laziness or simply incompetence of an official. It could be a technical error, such as a glitch or flaw in the software used. And worst of all: intentional misconduct, where an official fails to fulfil his or her duties in good faith or exceeds his or her authority deliberately. Unfortunately, foreigners with poor Spanish language skills have a particularly good chance of getting into such a situation.
