The annual counter-terrorism simulation at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law was created by Professor Amos Guiora as part of his Global Perspectives on Counterterrorism class. The course itself is based on his casebook, Global Perspectives on Counterterrorism (2007, Aspen Publishers).
Participants engage in a half-day simulation exercise that mirrors a multiple terrorism related scenarios occurring simultaneously in real time in the US and abroad. Students enrolled in the course role-play critical decision-makers including U.S. President, CIA Director, FBI Director, Secretary of State, Attorney General, police chiefs, Secretary of Homeland Security, Mayors, and ambassadors to the UN in an effort to understand dilemmas faced by decision makers predicated on the availability of minimal intelligence information in a time-sensitive environment.
