A social security disability hearing is different from other types of court proceedings. There is no jury, the cases are decided by administrative law judges who work for the federal government. There is also no lawyer present representing the government, which means the judge serves both those roles. The hearings generally last for 30-45 minutes with the focus being on of your testimony being your day-to-day activities and the practical ways in which the conditions that make you unable to work impact your day to day life.
