Administrative Law

The administrative law belongs to the public law and regulates the relations between government and citizens, and administrative institutions (government authorities and offices). In the event of lawsuits, the administrative legal process, regulated in VwGO is opened. It is divided into two major sections: the general and specific administrative law.

Three principles are distinctive in this legal area:

  1. Precedence of the law: no administrative action may take place contrary to statutory regulations (Article 20 III GG)
  2. Proviso of the law: no administrative action may take place without a legal basis (Article 20 I, II GG)
  3. Principle of proportionality: Each administrative action, which interferes in the rights of citizens must be proportionate.

The general administrative law here regulates the relevant procedures, institutions and forms of action and enforcement posibilities of the administration, the special administrative law applies to specific matters, although it sometimes overlaps. Considered as matters of the special administrative law are: police law, right of assembly, street law, construction law, municipal law, industrial, craft and catering law, environmental law, water law, waste law, immission control law, school and university law, epidemic protection and more.

Often, a citizen is confronted with the administrative law when he needs an authorization for something like a building permit.
