Constitutional Court of Spain

court interpreting the Constitution of Spain

The Constitutional Court (Spanish: Tribunal Constitucional) is the supreme interpreter of the Spanish Constitution.[1] 8/1984, 4/1985, 6/1988, 7/1999 and 1/2000.[2] The court is the "supreme interpreter" of the Constitution, but since the court is not a part of the Spanish Judiciary,[2] the Supreme Court is the highest court for all judicial matters.[3]
