Minority Board


Explanation:
Teniendo en cuenta lo que el Patronato de Menores significa en el sistema legal argentino, esto es lo más cercano que se me ocurre.

Para "Board", ver el AVH Legal, pág. 856, "patronato", y el Dicc. de Thomas West III, pág. 177.-

OJO: The "Patronato de Menores" under argentine civil and criminal laws is not an institution that provides services to children, it's an insitution that protects and looks after their LEGAL interests; i.e., when a minor is heir to something, the "Asesor de Menores" mus intervene in the estate's distribution ("la sucesión"), and so on in other cases.

neutral  Óscar Delgado Gosálvez: si acaso Board of Minors. Minority board EMHO significaría que el patronato está en minoría respecto de algo.

  -> Vale, Oscar. Es cuestión de criterios, la gramática inglesa permite ambas expresiones...en tu ejemplo se debería decir "the Board was in minority". Pero gracias por el comentario, anyway.-
