Administrative Law as an Anticipatory Law

GENERAL SUBJECT: ADMINISTRATIVE LAW AS A ANTICIPATORY LAW

I.Presentation

Anticipatory law represents legal certainty, but this conception in administrative law is not very common, even it seems unknown. However, it shows that it is necessary to let behind the traditional function of the law as a “reactive law” and move forward to anticipatory law. “Reactive law” should be the exception, only when you can not anticipate the infraction of the legality or the violation of the human rights or the damage, the principle of responsibility will contribute to restore the legality. This vision in administrative law avoids disputes and litigation and promotes ways to use this law to create value, to build peace and to make more human the law.
