Quasi-judicial proceeding

A quasi-judicial proceeding is a trial that adopts the form of a judicial process without a formal basis in law.


The word 'quasi' consists of two Latin words: Quam + Si. Quam, in Latin, means ‘as much as’ and Si means ‘if.’ The prefix ‘quasi’ connotes the meaning – ‘similar to but not exactly the same as.’ Thus, quasi-judicial proceedings are similar to but not exactly court proceedings.[1] The term also implies that these authorities are not routinely responsible for holding such proceedings and often may have other duties.

In short, an administrative function is called ‘quasi-judicial’ when there is an obligation to assume a judicial approach and to comply with the basic requirements of natural justice. Thus, the fundamental purpose of a quasi-judicial hearing is to provide the affected parties due process.[2] Due process requires notice of the proceedings and an opportunity to be heard.
