This chapter examines the diversity of administrative law in European states. It considers administrative-law orders that have remained unique as well as those which have been influential. Three archetypes of administrative law provide the focal point for this discussion: Great Britain, France, and Germany. These three states have propagated their own system of administrative law throughout Europe, either in the shadow of their military and political power, through their economic significance, or through the influence of their legal scholarship. Groups or families of countries have grown around these ‘source states’ and partly use the same legal institutes and principles.
