Example text

The word ‘adjudication’ marks the similarity between external review and Fullerian adjudication and the word ‘administrative’ marks the contrast between the adversarial civil or criminal trial, on which Fuller’s analysis is based, and external review, which may or may not be conducted adversarially. There is another significant difference between making, reconsidering and internally reviewing decisions on the one hand, and administrative adjudication (external review of decisions) on the other.

When a decision made by a government agency is challenged or disputed, a common pattern is for the decision first to be reconsidered by the original decision-maker. If the decision-maker affirms the original decision or varies it in a way that does not satisfy the affected party, the original decision may be internally reviewed. If neither reconsideration nor internal review resolves the affected party’s grievance, that party may seek external review of the decision by a court or a tribunal. One way of understanding these various processes is in terms of a stylised model of legal decision-making that involves the application of general rules in three steps: identification of an individual’s conduct or circumstances; identification of a social objective expressed in a rule (or ‘norm’); and regulation of the individual’s conduct or circumstances in accordance with, and in order to promote the social objective of, the rule.

Non-judicial external reviewers may take a more active role in the process of collecting relevant material than is typical of courts, and the role of the party representing the decision-maker may be to assist the reviewer to decide whether the decision ought to be affirmed, varied or replaced by a substitute decision rather than to convince the reviewer that the decision under review ought to be affirmed. Nevertheless, either way, the role of the third party will be to decide neutrally and impartially whether or not the decision should be affirmed, varied or replaced by a substitute decision.
