OFFICE OF THE CHIEF IMMIGRATION JUDGE
Judicial Law Clerks
The Office of the Chief Immigration Judge (OCIJ) hires judicial
law clerks each year through the Attorney General's Honors Program to conduct
legal research and draft memoranda and judicial opinions for the nations Immigration
Judges. Immigration Judges are responsible for conducting formal court proceedings,
and act independently in deciding the matters before them. In a typical removal
proceeding, the Immigration Judge may decide whether an alien is deportable
or inadmissible under the law, then may consider whether that alien may avoid
forced removal by accepting voluntary departure or by qualifying for asylum,
cancellation of removal, adjustment status, protection under the United Nations
Convention Against Torture, or other forms of relief.
Judicial law clerk positions have typically been available in the following cities: Arlington, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Newark, Oakdale, Phoenix, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle.
Summer Law Interns
OCIJ also participates in the Attorney General's Summer Law Intern (SLI) Program. SLIs are hired to work at Immigration Courts across the United States where they have the opportunity to work closely with Immigration Judges and judicial law clerks to develop their knowledge of immigration law. SLIs who receive outstanding evaluations may be eligible to receive offers for post-graduation judicial law clerk positions upon completion of their internships. SLI positions have typically been available in the following cities: Arlington, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle.
