Counterterrorism Law and Policy



 



Welcome to LawShelf’s video-course on counterterrorism law. In this course, we’ll introduce you to the strategies the United States, its allies and international organizations such as the United Nations, use when combatting global terrorism. This is an introductory level course and no prior experience or knowledge of international law or national security law is necessary.

Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, fighting terrorism and preventing terrorist acts across the world have become hallmarks of U.S. foreign policy. How does the United States fight terrorism though and what are the legal sources for these methods to halting this menace?
