Administrative Law

The concept of review of administrative action is based on the rule of law: all power within the state must emanate from the law and it must be exercised within the limits established by that law.

Administrative Law, relates to the organisation, the composition, the functions and the procedures of public authorities and special statutory tribunals, and the impact of these bodies on the citizen. It also deals with the legal restraints and liabilities to which such bodies are subject and also the means by which a citizen aggrieved by these bodies may seek redress.

Our office provides guidance as to the appropriate review mechanisms (such as ombudsman, judicial review, local governance board and other bodies) available to challenge administrative acts carried out both by Government and any of its entities.
