Throughout this study programme, participants will have the opportunity to study the workings of government agencies and their functions as regulated by law.
Participants will study governmental institutions of the modern nation state, the powers attributed to such institutions, and the manner and limits within which they can be exercised. Comparative studies will be discussed and encouraged.
This unit shall also cover the concept of the judicial review of administrative actions under Maltese law, which deals with various issues ranging from the exercise of ultra vires powers, to action in relation to public offices and service. Participants will also draw comparisons with congruent foreign actions, particularly with relation to other similarly modern democratic societies.
