The ALJ acts as presiding officer with respect to proceedings, presiding over the hearings and writing opinions and making decisions, and performing ancillary duties. As presiding officer, the ALJ determines who is entitled to participate and to what extent; admits evidence into the record, or rejects proffered documents and oral testimony; and considers proposed findings and conclusions and briefs submitted by the parties. The ALJ issues initial decisions and orders in adjudicatory proceedings, which become final decisions of the Department of Justice unless appealed. Final consent orders are issued by the ALJ following settlement by the parties and after a hearing or upon waiver of a hearing. Specific proceedings assigned to the incumbent include both rulemaking and adjudicatory matters.

The ALJ position functions, and is classified, as a judge under the Administrative Procedure Act. When hearings are conducted, a complete formal record of the hearing is regularly prepared, and formal written opinions are issued. In addition, with the approval of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and with the consent of the supervisor, the ALJ may be called to another agency for the purpose of conducting formal administrative hearings before such other agency.

In addition to performing the duties described above, the ALJ is also qualified to conduct, and may be assigned to conduct the following proceedings as an immigration judge: removal, discretionary relief, rescission of adjustment status, claims of persecution, stays of removal, and bond and detention. In accordance with section 101(b)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (Act), the incumbent is an attorney appointed by the Attorney General as an administrative judge who is qualified to conduct specified classes of proceedings, including removal proceedings under section 240 of the Act, and to preside at formal, quasi-judicial hearings to determine the issues arising in exclusion, deportation, and related proceedings.
