The Fifth Plague is a unique simulation-based counter-terrorism conference dealing with a bioterrorism attack. Participants, who include local, state, national and international officials, will be asked to "role play" their response to an agricultural-based attack. Issues that will be addressed include: legal questions of authority and powers of various agencies; cooperation among different branches of the government and between the U.S. and Canada; and responses to an actual attack.

Additional Information
An Interdisciplinary Approach
This annual forum for interdisciplinary study of contemporary issues is presented by the Frederick K. Cox International Law Center. With a focus on bioterrorism, this year's symposium is co-sponsored by two other centers for a multi-faceted approach. The newly established Institute for Global Security Law and Policy is designed to be a leading research and resource center concerning terrorism. The Law-Medicine Center has a long history of interdisciplinary study, work and collaboration with other fields on cutting-edge issues. Health law is increasingly important as potential responses to bioterrorism and other national security and disaster threats are sought.

View a detailed agenda.
