Law of Self Defense Simulator Module

NEW: We are adding an OPTIONAL Law of Self Defense Simulator Module to this seminar. Immediately after completion of the seminar, 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 added before August 17, or $149.99 per student if added November 10 or later. This option is NOT available separately from the seminar; you MUST be registered for the seminar 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 seminar.

THERE ARE ONLY 12 SLOTS AVAILABLE FOR THE SIMULATOR MODULE.  These will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis!

Other Seminar Options

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 ~350-400 presentation slides (printed six-to-a-page), and have this provided to you at the start of the seminar. We strongly encourage this, as it facilitates note-taking, but it is not required. We do not bring extra copies to the seminar, so if you want a slide packet on site you must pre-order here.  MUST BE ORDERED BY December 5!

NOTE: Only pre-ordered slides will contain both OR and WA self-defense law for the single price indicated above. After the seminar the slides will be available only as separate OR or WA versions, priced and sold as individual products.

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 seminar saves you 20% off standard mail ordering. Autographs are provided on-site upon request.

PRE-REGISTRATION and PRE-PAYMENT is REQUIRED for ALL seminars. Seminars 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 seminar 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 seminar you will learn how self-defense laws are applied in the real world to real people in real self-defense scenarios.  This seminar 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 seminar 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 seminar 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 seminars are considered an essential self-defense law resource by many judges, lawyers, and Federal and local law enforcement.

THIS IS AN EDUCATIONAL SEMINAR. THIS SEMINAR 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.
