Topic COURTS IN CRISIS
Every judge faces difficult decisions, but for immigration judges - who are employees of the U.S. Department of Justice rather than lifetime or term appointees (or electeds) - the decision-making process is interrupted and informed by unique complications ranging from high case quotas, waning decisional independence, DOJ policy directives, and the complex vicarious trauma that comes from hearing petitioners' stories of rape, genocide, and religious and political persecution.
Please join Queen’s Bench on July 14 at noon for a critical conversation with retired immigration Judge Andrea Sloan about the state of the U.S. immigration judiciary.
This is part of the Queen's Bench 2020 Luncheon Speaker Series: Difficult Decisions
