ADMINISTRATIVE BOARD - Black's Law Dictionary

What is ADMINISTRATIVE BOARD? Definition of ADMINISTRATIVE BOARD in Black's Law Dictionary

The term is very broad and includes bodies exercising varied func- tions, some of which involve orders made or other acts done ex parte or without full hearing as to the operative facts, while others are done only after such a notice and hearing, and the functions of the former kind are plainly "administrative" and those of the latter are "quasi ju- dicial". Beaverdale Memorial Park v. Danaher, 127 Conn. 175, 15 A.2d 17, 21.

"Administrative boards" differ from "courts" in that boards frequently represent public interests entrusted to boards, whereas courts are concerned with litigating rights of parties with adverse interests. Rommell v. Walsh, 15 A.2d 6, 9, 127 Conn. 16.
