This recording discusses options to protect your client when appearing before an Immigration Judge (IJ) engaged in wrongdoing. Practitioners and pro se respondents frequently encounter IJs who are intemperate or act in a manner that is inconsistent with fundamental legal principles. Speakers include former Immigration Judges Denise Slavin and Paul Schmidt, and will be moderated by FCLS Steering Committee member Thomas Ragland.

This candid Q&A conversation provides an IJ's insights into:

  • Creating a record, preserving the issues, and asking for relief in the face of IJ misconduct.
  • Filing a formal complaint: steps, processes, and outcomes.
  • Ethical issues: steps to ensure ethical acts, and to protect against EOIR retaliation.
  • Suggestions for practical reforms in the new administration.
