In the wake of the 9/1 terrorist attacks, anti-terrorism legislation has proven to have far reaching implications for the way the western world has come to understand the relationship between society and the law. Indeed, as the focal point of this course, the relationship between society and the law has come to be understood as one of many tensions and contradictions. What has become clear thus far is the notion that the relationship between the two is one of adaptability and fluid change, where as one evolves the need for change in the other becomes evident.

Academic Literature A rather obvious starting point under this category was to look under the library catalogue to see what hits I was able to conjure up. [...]

[...] Abdelrazik's case related to our focus of antiterrorism legislation and more generally a unique approach to understanding the relationship between society and the law. The methods I will use to conduct this investigation will include: a preliminary Google search, a search of both academic and legal literature, a public opinion search and a media and commentary search.
