Office of the General Counsel

The Office of the General Counsel (OGC) provides legal advice on a wide variety of matters involving the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) and its employees in the performance of their official duties. The OGC staff coordinates the development of agency regulations, reviews and comments on proposed legislation, and responds to all Freedom of Information and Privacy Act requests. In addition, OGC is the designated point of contact regarding Standards of Conduct and other ethics guidance for all EOIR employees. The Employee/Labor Relations Unit of OGC advises agency managers on personnel issues, defends Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) actions filed against the agency, monitors investigations conducted by the Office of Professional Responsibility in the Department of Justice (DOJ), and defends against unfair labor practices charges. OGC also administers the Fraud Prevention Program and the Attorney Discipline Program, and supervises the Certification Unit. OGC also serves as the principal point of contact for other DOJ offices and government agencies on all agency-related legal matters.
