Course Summary

The threat of terrorism in Australia is real; however, the legal mechanisms directed at combating terrorism are often not well understood. This course provides an overview of the key mechanisms for practitioners.

Recent developments, both in Australia and overseas, have resulted in the Commonwealth Parliament introducing new legislative measures directed at combating terrorism. These new mechanisms build on the existing legal framework designed to counter terrorism in Australia. 

This course provides a timely overview of Australia’s current legal framework related to combating terrorism, as well as recent and proposed changes to this rapidly evolving area of the law. The course provides an overview of the:

  • core terrorism offences;
  • control order regime;
  • powers of law enforcement;
