What is an example of administrative law

Administrative law

Administrative law forms an important part of public law, it is the law of the executive.

With administration is meant that part of the public administration by the state or by organs or persons commissioned by it, which cannot be assigned to the area of ​​the legislature (legislation) or the area of ​​the judiciary (jurisdiction).

The main task of the administration is therefore the execution of the law by the state. Administrative law comprises the entirety of all legal provisions that regulate the establishment and activities of the public administration bodies.

There is no codification of all administrative law, the legal provisions are scattered over a multitude of laws, ordinances and municipal bylaws. General administrative law, which deals with the rules applicable to all areas of public administration (e.g. rules of administrative procedure or administrative litigation) is comprehensively regulated in the Federal Administrative Procedure Act and in the administrative procedural laws of the federal states. In the special administrative law you will find a large number of subject-specific rules that only apply to special areas of individual administrative branches, e.g. police law, construction law, social law, civil service law or tax law.
If no special regulations are made by the special administrative law, the general administrative law applies.
