– Register at   This seminar is an in-depth, Florida-specific professional-level education on self-defense law presented by internationally recognized attorney Andrew Branca.  Andrew takes great care to translate “legalese” into plain English, ensuring that the seminar is accessible and actionable by non-lawyers. At the same time, the legal quality of the seminar is reflected in its accreditation for 5.5 hours of Continuing Legal Education by the Florida Bar.

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 leads to criminal charges and convictions. In this way attendees learn how to minimize their vulnerability to prosecution after acting in necessary self-defense and attorneys will better understand how to advise their clients involved in a self-defense event, recognize the strengths and weaknesses of their self-defense cases and conduct an effective case investigation. Questions are answered as long as necessary to ensure that every portion is thoroughly understood.

Following Mr. Branca’s presentation, Orlando criminal defense attorney, Don West, will present an interactive discussion of insights and advice for trial lawyers defending a self-defense case and practical tips for the concealed carrier learned from the George Zimmerman prosecution in the shooting of Trayvon Martin.
