Co-Director, Immigration & Non-Citizen Rights Clinic and Associate Professor of Law
Professor Talia Peleg and her students represent non-citizens in all areas of the immigration system. Her scholarship and practice focus on combating the entanglement of the immigration and criminal legal systems, which has led to the devastating detention and deportation of hundreds of thousands of non-citizens. Professor Peleg and her students creatively advocate for their clients to be released from the grips of both the immigration and criminal legal systems so that they can live their lives free from governmental control and surveillance. Prior to teaching at CUNY, she was a Supervising Attorney in the Immigration Practice at Brooklyn Defender Services. Professor Peleg is a proud graduate of the Immigrant and Non-Citizen Rights Clinic and CUNY School of Law. Read Talia Peleg's full bio.
