The Judge Alfred P. Murrah Center for Homeland Security Law & Policy at Oklahoma City University School of Law examines the unique legal issues central to protecting and securing our nation, with a focus on the prevention of domestic terrorism. The Murrah center provides legal analysis, insight support on matters of domestic security and counterterrorism faced by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as well as explore ways to combat extremism and radicalism at its root.
The tragedy that occurred April 19, 1995 brought to the legal forefront a need for further exploration of homeland security law and policy. With Oklahoma City University School of Law's history of producing leaders in this field, as well as our community's connection to the devastating bombing and tireless efforts to rebuild in its aftermath, the Murrah Center is uniquely positioned to help a nation and members of the private sector prepare for and prevent such emergencies on the homefront.
Located on the sacred soil where the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building once stood, the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum honors the victims, survivors, rescuers, and all who were affected by the bombing on April 19, 1995. It's a beautifully designed, touching tribute to the 168 Oklahomans who died that day. The Memorial and Museum is devoted to educating visitors about the impact of violence and terrorism as well as inspiring hope and healing.
The Judge Alfred P. Murrah Center for Homeland Security Law & Policy is proud to be working in collaboration with the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum.
