St Mary’s University Center for Terrorism Law
St Mary’s University Center for Terrorism Law, Founded in 2003, the Center for Terrorism Law is a research center dedicated to the study of legal issues associated with antiterrorism and counterterrorism. Particular emphasis is given to cyberterrorism, bioterrorism, critical infrastructure and information assurance technologies. The goal of the Center is to examine current and potential legal issues related to terrorism in light of the challenge of achieving and maintaining a proper balance between national security and civil liberties. As a research facility, this goal is pursued through teaching terrorism law courses, professional exchanges such as symposia and consultations; writing; commenting on and publishing written materials; conducting training; and ensuring access to extensive information resources regarding terrorism.
The Center for Terrorism Law is an educational and working institution, which operates hand-in-hand with government, business and academia on a variety of legal matters associated with the Global War on Terrorism. It is our intent that over time, as a sufficient body of knowledge is developed, that the legal lessons learned in the Global War on Terrorism may become the basis for fixed templates to more efficiently manage the applicable legal issues.
