This course is designed to expose students to the legal implications of government’s two critical roles in dealing with mass domestic terrorist incidents: crisis and consequence management. “Crisis management” is predominantly a domestic law enforcement response (sometimes supplemented by the military) to terrorist threats. It includes law enforcement and intelligence measures to prevent threats or acts of terrorism, as well as to apprehend and prosecute the perpetrators of terrorist attacks. “Consequence management” concerns measures to protect public health and safety, including restoring essential government services and providing emergency relief to businesses and individuals affected by the consequences of terrorist incident.
