Professor Zilberman is an assistant professor and directs the Immigration Clinic. She directed the Immigration Clinic at the University of Arkansas from 2018-2021 and was a visitor at the University of Washington School of Law from 2021-2022. She also previously served as a fellow in the Michigan State University College of Law’s Immigration Law Clinic and the Boston College Immigration Clinic.

She is a graduate of Boston College Law School, where she was a Public Service Scholar and received the Aviam Soifer Award for Public Service Achievement and Leadership. After graduation, she was an Equal Justice Works fellow with Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) in Boston, sponsored by Microsoft and the Sidley Austin Foundation, defending children and young adults who survived gender-based violence against deportation. 

Her scholarship explores the intersection of immigration and administrative law, specifically the divide between administrative design theorization and immigration agencies’ implementation of their regulatory charges.
