Fundamentals of Law in Spain: Get to Know Them!

In Spain, the legal system is based on a set of fundamental principles that form the foundation of our legal framework. These principles are essential to understand how the law operates in our country. Here are some of the main ones:

1. Principle of Legality:

It means that no one can be punished for something that is not expressly prohibited by the law. In other words, the law must clearly establish what is illegal.

2. Equality Before the Law:

All citizens are equal before the law, regardless of their origin, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.

3. Non-Retroactivity:

Laws cannot have retroactive effect, meaning they cannot be applied to actions committed before their enactment.

4. Publicity of Rules:

Laws and regulations must be publicly available so that everyone can access them and know their rights and obligations.

7. Presumption of Innocence: Every person is considered innocent until proven guilty.

8. Proportionality of Penalties:

Penalties must be proportional to the committed offense.

These are just some of the fundamental principles of law in Spain. Understanding them is essential to have a clear view of how our legal system operates. Do you have any questions about these principles or need legal advice? We are here to assist you!
