Administrative law is a branch of public law, which is a set of legal rules governing the activity of the executive authority during the performance of its administrative functions.

Administrative law defines how to manage public utilities and exploit public funds, in addition to organizing public service (appointment, commissioning and promotion).

In this new topic we will talk about the characteristics and sources of administrative law.

Characteristics of administrative law:

Administrative law is from the creation of the judiciary. In other words, created by the administrative rules and principles established by the judiciary.

The administrative law is fast evolving, ie it is a law that develops rapidly in comparison with other laws such as labor law or civil law, and this is because of the matters dealt with by this law.

Administrative law changes rapidly because of the social, economic and political factors that occur in the state.

Administrative law because of its rapid development does not codify its rules and principles in a single law.

The administrative law is newly established, any still considered a modern law compared to the civil law that was created thousands of years ago or the constitutional law whose appearance was associated with ancient Greek civilization.

Sources of Administrative Law:

The executive regulations issued by the ministries and competent in the implementation of all laws issued by the legislative authority.

 The ordinary law which follows the constitutional and fundamental laws.

Police regulations that issue administrative control regulations that are to maintain security, health and housing.

The administrative law obtains some of its rules through the judiciary which adjudicates disputes.

The administrative law gets its rules through habits, which the administration used to follow during the performance of the public function, which is called administrative custom.
