Annual counter-terrorism simulation attracts local media attention

Law students at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law enrolled in a course designed by  Amos Guiora  participated in a counter-terrorism simulation on April 6 designed to teach them how to respond when terrorists strike.

During the simulation, students were given various roles and advocated for their assigned positions. They conducted press conferences and made decisions that affected the outcome of the simulated terrorist attack. The simulation is designed to help students understand what it would be like to work in a high-pressure situation while cooperating in a group and making justified decisions.

Law student Abigail Brammer, who is enrolled in the class, wrote about the event in a post here.

Several local media outlets covered the event, including ABC 4, Fox 13, KUTV2 and KSL.
