AP Style also gives a guideline to write down the federal title ‘Administrative Law Judge’. This particular title refers a formal title for a person who serves as a professional hearing officer.
If you are using this title as a formal title, then you should capitalize it and write it before a name. For example,
• Administrative Law Judge Tammy Pust.
However, you can also write this title by setting off commas. In this way, you do not need to capitalize this title. For example,
• The administrative law judge, Tammy Pust, will not be present today.
Furthermore, if you are not referring this title as formal or you are referring more than one person, then you should not capitalize this particular title. For example,
1. Application has been sent to the agency’s administrative law judge.
2. SEC’s administrative law judges will hold their specific positions.
