FERNANDEZ SARASOLA, Ignacio. The rights to a hearing and to a lawful judge in the Spanish constitutional system. Estud. Socio-Juríd [online]. 2008, vol.10, n.2, pp. 76-108. ISSN 0124-0579.
Right to Audience and Right to a Lawful Judge are presumed to be two of the most important guaranties for the rule of law. Both liberties are established in the Spanish Constitution of 1978 as "fundamental rights", and they are included as a part of a most generic right: the right to due process of law. Along this text, I will try to show its content and significance, according to the sentences of the Spanish "Tribunal Constitucional", passed through more than 25 years.
Palabras llave : Due process of law; right to audience; right to lawful judge.
