Taichung High Administrative Court




The judicial system of our country consists of two parts. Ordinary courts have jurisdiction over civil and criminal cases, while administrative courts have jurisdiction over cases and controversies that arise from public law. The Taichung High Administrative Court has assumed, since it was established on July 1, 2000, the judicial function of protecting the rights and interests of the people and ensuring that the executive power of the state is exerted within the bounds of the law. Today, this Court, and the Supreme Administrative Court, the Taipei High Administrative Court, the Kaohsiung High Administrative Court, and the administrative litigation tribunals at district courts shoulder the aforementioned tasks.

As a response to these various types of administrative acts, the Administrative Litigation Act sets out various types of litigation. As administrative litigation involves professional expertise, and the defendant in administrative litigation is usually a government office that knows the relevant statutes and regulations well, this Court takes two measures to assist those individuals who may need litigation. First, this Court has set up a Single Window Joint Service Center to offer services that provide individuals with convenience and courtesy, including the service of litigation counseling. Second, this Court cooperates with the Taichung Branch of the Legal Aid Foundation and the Taichung Bar Association to set up a Legal Service Center for Ordinary People to offer legal aid and counseling. In addition, this Court acknowledges the special qualities of citizens of the mobile generation, and, therefore, it takes three measures to reach them. First, it has updated its website. Second, it has set up a Facebook page and a blog. Third, it uses electronic technology to spread information about administrative litigation, offers judicial resources in various ways, and facilitates, for the people, research and the use of documents.

The judiciary exists to earn the trust by the people. In order to respond to the avid expectation held by various sectors of the society for judicial reform, this Court will continue to attentively hear opinions expressed in society by emphasizing the perspectives of the people and striving for the protection of human rights. Through the participation of the people via multi-track dialogue, this Court will continue to improve its operations for the purpose of building a fair, friendly, and up-to-date judicial environment and will enhance the effectiveness and timeliness of its trials to protect the rights and interests of the people and to ensure that that the executive power of the state is exerted within the bounds of the law.
