Administrative Law

Administrative Law is the field of law that governs mainly the structure and functioning of the public service and the state in general. It also governs the relations between the state who is enforcing its decisions on one hand and the individuals, who are obliged to follow these decisions on the other. The interaction of these two conflicting rights can lead to disputes.

Administrative Law is based on Article 146 of the Constitution of Cyprus and it provides the adequate safeguards to the citizen and individual against the decisions and actions of the state, that affect rights.

The Supreme Court of Cyprus which acts, with a different composition, both as an Administrative Court of first instance and also as an Appellate Administrative Court.

In the field of Administrative Law it is of the outmost importance that the client acts immediately against any government decision affecting his/her rights, as there is a limitation period of 75 days, beginning from the day that the relevant decision and/or act came to his/her knowledge. After the lapse of this limitation period, legal action can not be taken against any such decision and/or act, as this becomes final and irrevocable.
