Want a sneak peek of what you will be learning?

Here’s a summary of the 12 modules in the class!
Module 1: Legal and Philosophical Theories of Self-Defense Law
From Natural law to St Augustine to the modern 3 major models of self-defense law, we'll go through a thorough analysis of our law's origins so you may understand not just what the laws are but how we came by them.
Module 2: Structures & Roles of the Trial and Appellate Courts, Citations, and Sources of Law
It seems everything in human society has a hierarchy and our court system is no different.  In this module we'll thoroughly analyze the hierarchies of US legal precedence, our legal processes, and our courts themselves.
Module 3: How to Read and Understand a Self-Defense Appellate Opinion Like a Lawyer
Ever wonder how I am able to distill a state's self-defense law cases into its most fundamental precedence?  Wonder no more.  In this section I will help you thoroughly analyze cases that create precedence in your jurisdiction so you can understand the exact nature, and limitations, of that case's opinion.
Module 4: The Criminal Charge
Murder, assault, aggravated battery... you may know basically what these words mean, but what are the exact factors that differentiate them? What do they mean for someone's future if they are successfully prosecuted on these charges? What are lesser offenses and how might a jury be instructed to consider them?  This and much more are considered in this module.
Module 5 & 6: The Criminal Justice Pipeline
From the first call to 911 to the final decision of a Supreme Court, learn the exact elements of every stage of our court system, what could go wrong, and how to strategically improve your odds of winning.
Module 7-9: The 5 Elements of Self Defense
You've heard Attorney Branca discuss the five elements of self-defense (innocence, imminence, proportionality, avoidance, and reasonableness) but you've never heard it at quite this depth!
Module 10-11: Defense of Others and Property
Learn how courts have argued when defending others people and property is clearly acceptable, clearly not, and that huge grey area in the middle.  Dissect various jurisdictions and how they approach the topics and understand not just their reasoning but why they reason the way they do given their history and culture so you can best argue for or against your position.
Module 12: Interacting with the Police

Learn how lawyers approach these interactions and why sometimes their clients make them unbelievably happy and at other times make them shake their heads in frustration.

Module 13: Case Briefs

Be the person that is producing the best analysis of cases out there.  Learn how, why, and what makes a case brief so powerful.


Our modules discuss far more than what is listed here.  Take the class and discover unbelievable amounts of information you never knew you needed!

What Self-Defense and Experts Are Saying:


"You are wise to buy this material. I hope you watch it, internalize it, and keep it to the forefront whenever you even think of reaching for a gun."

Massad Ayoob
Director, Lethal Force Institute


"If you plan on defending yourself, and I don’t care if it’s with pepper spray, or a taser, or a firearm, you need Andrew's information … Andrew is one of the single best resources I’ve found on self defense law. This is absolutely outstanding."

Mike Seeklander
Founder of the American Warrior Society,
Veteran, former Law Enforcement Officer

John-Lott (1)

"Andrew Branca is a lawyer who has a knack of explaining the law so that it is readily accessible to everyone. Having a gun when the police aren’t there to protect you can keep you alive, but understanding his materials can keep you out of jail to continue enjoying that life.”

John Lott
President, Crime Prevention Research Center


What Instructor Program Graduates Are Saying:

"I enrolled in the LOSD Instructor Program with very high expectations. I was not disappointed. By all means, consider the instructor program. It is the best program I have found to improve understanding of the legal aftermath of self-defense"

Kenneth Dunaway

"As a former police officer in Kansas City, Mo and New York City and the owner/ Lead trainer of a Security and Firearms Training Company I wish I could have had your presentation, especially as a young man enforcing the laws on the streets of two very active cities. It would have been much easier had I been armed with the knowledge I have gained from your course. Your in- depth research is phenomenal, your breakdown of a very difficult subject is admirable.

Thanks to you Andrew it is now possible for me to present a high level in-depth Training in both the Law and Firearms Precision."

Kenneth Delahunt

"Being neither an instructor nor attorney I was not so sure about taking the course so decided to buy the more expensive choice (money down and paying for remaining modules separately) in case I did not want to complete the course. What a mistake. I should have paid for the entire course at once. It is well worth the price in gaining a better understand of the legal aspects of self defense."

Bruce Pankratz

"I cannot say enough good things about the Law of Self Defense Instructor Program and Andrew Branca. The material was thorough and clear. It was presented in a very easy to understand and well-organized manner. It was presented at a very high level, but made very accessible and minus confusing terms and legalese. I really enjoyed the module on the history and philosophy of self defense as well as the guide through the entire legal process. Even material that I already had a good understanding of, such as the five elements necessary to self defense, had some new twists and gave a great example how that material could be presented to future students. The LOSD staff and Andrew Branca were very communicative and very accessible. I truly appreciated that. I felt supported through the entire process and feel I will continue to be supported after completion. They are really top notch."

Stephanie Weidner

"I have over 32 years as a Federal Agent (My last assignment was Special Agent In Charge of National Electronics Surveillance Unit). Since 1981 I have been a Federal Firearms and Use of Force Instructor. I have been on staff at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center and a Senior Instructor at the National Intelligence Academy. In retirement I am a current Georgia POST Use of Force/Firearms instructor. I highly recommend Andrew Branca and the Self Defense Instructor program to anyone interested in or currently involved in teaching Use of Force and Self Defense Issues. It is very thorough, well thought out and he has done a ton of research you would be hard pressed to duplicate! He is accessible to the Instructors and responds almost immediately to questions etc. If you take your instruction seriously you MUST add this to your resume."

David Montalbano

"This was a wonderfully informative program which I was excited to take with my husband so we would be better prepared to educate our students on the legal aspects and ramifications of using self defense, as well as for personal gain. This level of knowledge on the topic of self defense is highly suggested for anyone who teaches self defense. Andrew always does a great job of providing a significant depth of knowledge while making the material easy to understand. Thank you for designing this course and making it available, and thank you also for providing the couple’s option."

Korey Cocking

"The program was very, very well done. You translated complex legal issues into plain English and understandable explanations. Although it has been about 25 years since I graduated from law school and I have practiced business and tax law since, I am sure that I did not learn as much in my criminal law and criminal procedure classes as I learned from the LOSD instructor program. You obviously put a lot of work into the program and I appreciate it. It will help me improve my presentations in the CCW classes I teach."

Attorney Gary True

"This program was thorough, practical, and provided a very strong understanding of self-defense legal principles. Valuable for instructors who teach self-defense laws to others and serious students of the art alike, it will provide the conscientious student with an expert level understanding of the legal framework of self-defense. Both the traditionally more commonly thought of deadly force and the less often considered but far more often necessary non-deadly force are covered. Presented in digestible segments, students are given material in modules that are logically grouped and can be worked through at the appropriate pace to ensure that the student obtains a firm grasp before moving on to the next module. Highly recommended!"
