Office of Immigration Litigation


Established in the United States Department of Justice in 1983, the Office of Immigration Litigation is responsible for coordinating national immigration matters before the federal district courts and circuit courts of appeals and is comprised of three subsections:

  • Department of Justice Resources: considered a cabinet-level agency responsible for enforcing the law and defending the United States’ best interests ensuring public safety against foreign and domestic threats.
  • Appellate Court Section: responsible of civil immigration before the federal appellate courts
  • District Court Section: responsible for immigration matters at the district court level

OIL attorneys work in conjunction with the United States Attorney General’s office. The Office’s primary purpose is to oversee all civil immigration litigation and to provide support and counsel to all federal agencies that are working with immigration admission, regulation, and even removal proceedings.
