Law of Sanctuary

Law 520



Writing Experience (WE)



This course meets once every other week.  It will engage students in the law of sanctuary as a historical doctrine and consider its use during the Underground Railroad, the 1982 Sanctuary Movement related to Central American refugees, and contemporary issues pertaining to so-called “sanctuary campuses” and “sanctuary cities.” Students will examine constitutional concerns, case law developments, and additionally focus on the issue at the state level as these concerns affect North Carolina.
