Administrative Law

Administrative Law at a glance

Administrative law is a branch of public law that governs the administration and activities of government agencies, the legal relationship between such agencies and the individuals, and the public at large. It could also be argued that administrative law attempts to regulate the increasingly complex social, economic and political spheres of human interaction. The activities and decisions of administrative bodies can be challenged before the Administrative Court of Cyprus. 

Sources of Cyprus Administrative Law:

  • European Union Law
  • Constitution of Cyprus
  • International Treaties
  • Laws enacted by the House of Representatives
  • Secondary Legislation/Regulations enacted by the governmental bodies
  • Case Law
  • Human Rights Law
