Law of Self Defense Seminar: Harvard, MA; November 15, 2014

TheLaw of Self-Defense Seminarprovides a comprehensive fact- and law-based education on the law of self-defense, presented by a nationally recognized legal expert in the field. TheSeminarsare in-person and conducted by Attorney Andrew Branca.

PRE-REGISTRATION & PRE-PAYMENT ARE REQUIRED. We expect to sell out quickly, if you simply show up the day-of there will not be room for you.

IMPORTANT:Early registration price of the seminar is "HSC SPECIAL DISCOUNTED PRICE" of $100/person. This same seminar run at the Sig Sauer Academy, where I'm a guest instructor, costs $150. Register early for the most savings.

Rather than a mere presentation of boring legal material, the seminar illustrates how the law of self-defense is applied in real court cases involving real people. In addition, the seminar is structured to engage students with scenario-driven applications of the legal principles governing the law of self-defense.

This seminar is customized to the self-defense law of Massachusetts.Participants will leave the seminar armed with the legal knowledge and analytical tools necessary to apply the law of self-defense in a practical and actionable way to situations that arise in their daily lives.

Students will leave the seminar with the knowledge and tools needed to build their legally-sound self-defense strategy that best fits their circumstances, and one that will minimize their legal vulnerability to prosecution and civil suit.

All participants will receive a certificate of completion and an opportunity to obtain the ~300 presentation slides at no cost.
