The Case Western Reserve University School of Law has launched an interactive Web site for its Institute for Global Security, Law and Policy, designed to stimulate public debate and provide a comprehensive hub for addressing security and counterterrorism issues.

The site, http://law.case.edu/terrorism, features a blog providing analysis of critical global security issues and links to legal and policy commentary, other blogs and news summaries across the Internet. By using the collaborative nature of blogging, the site encourages individuals within and outside the Institute to comment on legal and policy issues. Students enrolled in the Counterterrorism Law course, co-taught by Professor Amos Guiora and Adjunct Professor Jonathan Leiken, will submit weekly blog entries to the site.

"The site reflects the Case School of Law's commitment that the Institute becomes the leading national and international resource and research center for issues of global security," said Amos Guiora, professor of law and director of the Institute. Guiora is a retired lieutenant colonel in the Israel Defense Forces with extensive experience in counterterrorism.

"This Web site will increase the Institute's visibility and add to its reputation as the world's leading center for the study of global security issues," said Gerald Korngold, dean and McCurdy Professor of Law.

The Web site was developed by Case School of Law Webmaster Carl Roloff and Greg McNeal, a third-year law student and developer of one of the Web's most visited terrorism blogs. McNeal and Erin Page, also a third-year law student, will serve as Research Fellows in Terrorism and Homeland Security, updating the site and facilitating discussions.

The Institute was established in April with the goal of addressing issues in the fields of global security and counter-terrorism. Guiora is director of the Institute and Assistant Professor B. Jessie Hill is assistant director.
