My apologies if you are on our email list and received this as well.
I hope you are doing well. As you know, I try not to overwhelm our readers and list members with unnecessary clutter unless there is something new and noteworthy that I think you might be interested in or can use.
About a year ago, I attended a live event called the Law of Self Defense Seminar in Columbus, Ohio. Having been a police officer for 22 years, I didn’t think I would learn very much. I was wrong. I learned a lot in a few hours. As you know, everything carries a risk of liability these days, even when we act according to law and have righteous intentions, we can still get jammed up. Church security carries many of the same liabilities.
The instructor, Andrew Branca, is the author of The Law of Self Defense and he advised he will holding a webinar this Saturday if you or your team are interested in attending online.
The link I am providing to you is an affiliate link. This means CSA receives a small amount if you happen to register for it. Even if it wasn’t an affiliate link, I would be sending this information to you because I took a way so much from the information.
Here is the information he sent to me about the seminar to share with you.
The Law of Self Defense Webinar is a 4-hour in-depth online live event that instructs on the laws governing the use of force in defense of self, family, others, and property.
The webinars are customized for each participants’ state-specific self-defense statutes, jury instructions, and court decisions for the participants (see below for details). Every participant is sent a printed customized copy of the ~250 slide presentation that includes the specific self-defense laws of YOUR state.
Build A Legally-Sound Self-Defense Strategy Customized for YOU
The value presented by the Law of Self Defense Webinar is considerable. Over the course of 4 hours, and at a fraction of the cost of consulting one-on-one with a lawyer, you will learn how to build a legally-sound self-defense strategy by:
Learning how to minimize your vulnerability to prosecution and civil suit. Preparing yourself to win BOTH the physical AND the legal battles. Learning not just the letter of the law but also how it’s actually applied actual courts and prosecutors to actual people. Knowing what a prosecutor MUST prove in order to defeat your self-defense claim. Learning key strategies for “armoring up” the most common legal vulnerabilities. Understanding the incredible legal risks of defending others, and the strict limits on defending property. Learning what “Stand-Your-Ground,” the “Castle Doctrine,” “Presumptions of Reasonableness” and “Self-defense Immunity” REALLY mean . . . and what they DO NOT mean. Knowing what to say to 911, to the first responders, and to the investigative officers (pro-tip: each interaction is VERY different).
Customized for the State-Specific Self-Defense Laws of the Participants
During the live webinar illustrative statutes, jury instructions, and court decisions are drawn from among the many states from which participants have registered. That is, if participants have registered from 12 different states, as we proceed through the webinar we will randomly select from among those states’s laws to explain various points. Time does not allow every point to be illustrated with the full-text laws of every represented state.
However, the printed presentation YOU will receive is TOTALLY CUSTOMIZED to YOUR state, and includes all relevant self-defense statutes, jury instructions, and court decisions of your state placed in the context of the webinar. When you receive your copy of the presentation you will find EVERY point illustrated with the relevant law from YOUR state.
Live Webinar Enables You to Ask Questions, Explore Hypothetical Self-Defense Scenarios
In addition, the webinar interface allows you to type in questions or ask about specific hypothetical self-defense scenarios addressed to Attorney Branca. At regular intervals he will select from among these questions and scenarios to provide detailed law-based feedback. (Keep in mind, however, that this webinar cannot and does not provide personal legal advice. If you are in need of legal advice consult a competent lawyer in your jurisdiction.)
Shortly after registering here you will be sent a Webinar Access email from Law of Self Defense containing your personal password and other instructions to access the webinar on the scheduled date and time. This password will only work for a single login, so you must not lose or share it.
Take care and thanks for all you do.
All The Best,
