LE CONSEIL D'ETAT OF THE REPUBLIC OF FRANCE

 

The Conseil d'État advises the government about all administrative and legal issues and problems. It examines draft laws and implementing regulations before they are submitted to the Council of Ministers (Conseil des ministres). The Conseil d'État also delivers opinions on the legal correctness of texts, their form and administrative advisability.


Every year, the Conseil d'État addresses a report to the President of the Republic, in which it proposes to the government legislative and administrative reforms.

 

The Conseil d'État is the highest level of administrative jurisdiction, passing decisions on disputes between individuals and the administration.
