Meaning of ADMINISTRATIVE TRIBUNAL in English
- ADMINISTRATIVE TRIBUNAL
Hybrid adjudicating authorities which straddle the line between government and the courts. Between routine government policy decision-making bodies and the traditional court forums lies a hybrid, sometimes called a "tribunal" or "administrative tribunal" and not necessarily presided by judges. These operate as a government policy-making body at times but also exercise a licensing, certifying, approval or other adjudication authority which is " quasi-judicial " because it directly affects the legal rights of a person. Administrative tribunals are often referred to as "Commission", "Authority" or "Board."
