About the Murrah Center

The Judge Alfred P. Murrah Center for Homeland Security Law & Policy at Oklahoma City University School of Law will examine the unique legal issues central to protecting and securing our nation, with a focus on the prevention of domestic terrorism.

In partnership with the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, the Murrah Center will provide legal analysis, insight and 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 aftermath of April 19th brought to the legal forefront a need for further exploration of homeland security law and policy. Some of the areas requiring focus include:

   Homeland & national security


   Electronic surveillance & privacy

   Disaster & crisis management

   Continuity of government

   Immigration policy & practice

   Law on the domestic use of the armed forces

   Intelligence law & operations


With Oklahoma City University School of Law’s history of producing leaders in the field of homeland security law and policy, as well as our community’s connection to the tragic 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.
