"First, you must know there are currently around 320 immigration judges serving in the United States. The process for appointing an immigration judge generally starts with a notice being sent out to qualified attorneys who are members of the bars of certain federal courts, inviting them to submit applications for the position. From there, a screening committee reviews the applications and recommends a slate of candidates to the attorney general. The attorney general then makes the final decision on who to appoint as an immigration judge. Once appointed, immigration judges must complete a training program at the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review before they can begin hearing cases."
