Administrative Law, is the system of rules that govern the organization and functioning of Public Administration, that is to say, all public services of the State and those legal entities that are distinguished as bodies of public authority, as well as their relations with citizens and the authorities.
Our office in the field of Administrative Law deals with:

As well as matters relating to the structure, staffing, property, or referring to administrative and judicial scrutiny and administrative acts issued by the above services and legal persons, as well as to the formation of relations with third parties, and even to the extent of their competence they act, they are governed by Administrative Law which is essentially the most vital social branch of Constitutional Law.
Administrative law began to emerge as such law in European countries since the so-called “rule of law” prevailed since the mid-19th century. However, its beginnings were traced back to England in the 17th century, which saw the first restrictions on the arbitrariness of administration and at the same time on the obligation to obey the law. Nevertheless, the home of Administrative Law is considered to be France where the first administrative committees functioned and the first administrative courts were established that recognized the public rights of the governed.
In Greece, Administrative Law first appeared, almost at the same time, in 1833, by the then Bavarian government based on the French model, but it developed, a century later, mainly after the adoption of Law 3713/1928 by which it was finally established and instituted. in place of the planned Council of State in 1929, whose case-law transcended the general principles of the industry and formulated the concept of the principle of legality independently.
It is the most vital branch of public law. It is closely linked to the Constitutional Law of which it was formerly a part.
