Differences between abbreviated and ordinary procedure in the contentious-administrative order

Both procedures are established by Law 29/1998, of July 13th, regulating the Contentious-Administrative Jurisdiction (LJCA hereinafter).

In the wording of article 78 of the LJCA, it limits the abbreviated procedure to the Contentious-Administrative Litigation Courts or the Central Contentious-Administrative Litigation Courts.

The main differences of the abbreviated procedure with the ordinary procedure are:

  • That it begins by means of a lawsuit and not in a writing of filing.

  • That it is substantiated in a hearing so as not to impair the legal effectiveness of the principles of orality, immediacy and concentration.

  • That can only be used in cases of limited amounts.
