Law of Self Defense Simulator Module

NEW: We are adding an OPTIONAL Law of Self Defense Simulator Module to this LEVEL 1 Class. Immediately after completion of the LEVEL 1 Class, students who elect this option will have the opportunity to run through self-defense scenarios on a laser-based shooting simulator. Each student will run through at least one scenario. Upon completion of the scenario, Attorney Andrew Branca will conduct a self-defense law debrief of the “defender’s” use-of-force decision-making. Every student will observe every other student’s run, so all of those participating will have the opportunity to learn from each other. The scenarios will be run for at least one hour, and students may be able to do multiple runs if time allows. (We don’t yet know how long each run will take per student, nor how many students may sign up for the option.)

The Law of Self Defense Simulator Module is an optional add on, and costs an additional $99.99 per student if paid before February 25 or $149.99 if paid later. This option is NOT available separately from the class; you MUST be registered for the class in order to participate in the Law of Self Defense Simulator module, as the legal debrief will be based upon the education received during the class.

You can pre-pay for the Law of Self Defense Simulator on the bottom of this page. THERE ARE ONLY 12 SLOTS AVAILABLE FOR THE SIMULATOR MODULE.  These will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis!

(Click here for information on our LEVEL 2 Class the following day, Sunday March 26, at the same location.)

Once you’ve indicated your registration in the ticket form below, there are several additional options you may consider, each of which may also be selected in the ticket form at the bottom of this page.

OPTIONAL: Add presentation slides (+$29.99). You may pre-order a printed-and-bound copy of the >500 presentation slides (printed six-to-a-page), and have this provided to you at the start of the class. We strongly encourage this, as it facilitates note-taking, but it is not required. We do not bring extra copies to the class, so if you want a slide packet on site you must pre-order BY MARCH 11 here.

OPTIONAL: Add autographed copy of “The Law of Self Defense, 3rd Edition” (2016) (+$24.99). Pre-ordering the book to be delivered to you at the class saves you 25% off standard mail ordering. Autographs are provided on-site upon request.

PRE-REGISTRATION and PRE-PAYMENT is REQUIRED for ALL classes. Classes routinely sell out. We do not guarantee a seat unless you have pre-registered and pre-paid. We DO often have to turn away people who simply show up without having pre-registered/paid. DON’T BE THAT GUY.

This class is an in-depth, professional-level education on the on the law of self-defense, delivered in an informal and accessible manner.  Questions are answered as long as necessary to ensure that every portion is thoroughly understood.

Through this class you will learn how self-defense laws are applied in the real world to real people in real self-defense scenarios.  This class will teach you how prosecutors, defense attorneys, and judges view self-defense cases, and in particular what encourages prosecutors to bring charges and seek convictions.

Conversely, you will learn what aspects of a defensive force encounter help your defense build a compelling narrative of innocence, and how to minimize your vulnerability to prosecution and conviction.

The last hour or so of the class is devoted to helping you to build your own personal legally-sound self-defense strategy, incorporating your new understanding of self-defense law into your personal defensive tactics.  The goal:  teach how how to stay well within the bounds of the law of self-defense as possible without in any way diminishing your ability to win the physical, and as well as the legal, battle.

The class also allows for plenty of Q&A with Attorney Andrew Branca, an internationally recognized expert in American self-defense law.  His legal practice, writings, and classes are considered an essential self-defense law resource by many judges, lawyers, and Federal and local law enforcement.

THIS IS AN EDUCATIONAL CLASS. THIS CLASS DOES NOT PROVIDE LEGAL ADVICE. IF YOU ARE IN NEED OF LEGAL ADVICE, CONSULT COMPETENT LEGAL COUNSEL IN THE RELEVANT JURISDICTION. ATTORNEY ANDREW BRANCA IS LICENSED TO PRACTICE LAW ONLY IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS.
