How You Will Be Evaluated You will be evaluated for this job based on how well you meet the qualifications above

Ability to demonstrate the appropriate temperament to serve as a judge. 2. Knowledge of immigration laws and procedures. 3. Substantial litigation experience, preferably in a high volume context. 4.
Experience handling complex legal issues. 5. Experience conducting administrative hearings. 6. Knowledge of judicial practices and procedures.

The QRFs must be addressed on a separate document which indicates the number of the specific QRF you are addressing.
Applicants should be thorough in addressing the QRFs. For example, applicants addressing QRF #3 (substantial litigation experience) should discuss the approximate number of cases handled in a given period of time, the applicant's specific role (first chair, co-counsel, responsible for the written brief only, etc.), and the length of time involved in a given role (lead counsel in 20 jury trials In 10 years). Applicants should also include specific examples of the types of cases, the number of court appearances made in those cases, and the case dispositions (plea, settlement, bench trial, Jury trial, etc.) Conclusory statements (such as "the applicant has been involved in a substantial amount of litigation") will receive little or no weight in the evaluation of the QRFs.
