A trial-like proceeding before an administrative agency or administrative law judge. As in a trial, evidence is proffered and testimony is given. Unlike a trial, an administrative hearing is often shorter in duration and more informal in nature.
Definition from Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary
A hearing before a governmental agency or an administrative law judge. There is no jury, but the agency or the administrative law judge has the authority to make a decision and issue a ruling.
