The article compares various terms used in Estonian law regarding good administration - “right to good administration”, “principle of good administration” and “good administration practice” through the content elements to clarify whether Estonian legal practice incorporates good administration as law, principle or practice in a similar or different way, to enable each person to rely comprehensively on good administration as law, principle or practice in order to protect their violated rights.
