Professor Kalir Presents at “Offering Sanctuary” Conference at Oberlin College

On March 28, Oberlin College hosted a day-long conference on “Offering Sanctuary”. The conference examined the remedies and support communities, cities, and higher-education institution may offer undocumented persons. The conference was attended by many spiritual leaders, including priests, reverends, and rabbis, and was extremely dynamic. Professor Kalir’s presentation focused on two issues: first, the clergy-penitent privileged and its recent interpretation by the Ohio courts (both state and federal); second, the legal implications of declaring a city, a church, or a college a “sanctuary.” Russel Gates, a student at the Civil Litigation Clinic, assisted in the preparation of the presentation and attended the conference as well.
