administrative remedy
Procedure for allowing person to assert a right to some kind of relief before an administrative agency. Daniels v. U.S., C.A.Cal., 372 F.2d 407, 414.
Non-judicial remedy provided by agency, board, commission, or the like. In most instances, all administrative remedies must have been exhausted before a court will take jurisdiction of a case; e.g. U.S. District Courts will not consider a social security case unless all hearing, appeal, etc. remedies before the Social Security Administration have been exhausted
