Towards a procedural definition of Administrative Law

Oscar Alvaro Cuadros


An administrative law procedural definition implies a link between constitutionally recognized personal and political autonomy, jurisdiction conferred to the administrative agencies by the law, regular procedures and proportioned outcomes that support a reasonableness standard for the administrative decisions. Thus, administrative decisions become reasonable by following a process based on a political and procedural theory of justice, not according to a substantive idea public interest. Additionally, an administrative law procedural definition focuses on the regularity of government action and not on the administrative decision itself. It is made by means of a non-arbitrary government and, in this endeavor, it seeks to establish a simple model of administrative action of the government and its judicial review.
