NOTE: TIME SENSITIVE: Discount code provided in this show is valid only through December 7, 2017.  This video podcast is mostly a capture of the 30-minute Facebook Live session conducted on December 6, 2017.

Topics covered include:

Covering Wagner v. State, a self-defense case issued out of the Florida Court of Appeals today, December 6, 2017, involving issues of self-defense, accident, and battered spouse syndrome.

"Disparity of force" and how this doctrine is properly understood in self-defense cases.

How a defender's physical disabilities can modify the "Reasonableness" element in their favor.  

The legal risks of making an apparent aggressor aware that you have a gun in an effort to change their behavior. 

We also provided a discount code good for substantial savings on several Law of Self Defense products, but you'll need to listen to the podcast for those. NOTE: That code is valid only through December 7, 2017.

This video podcast is mostly a capture of the 30-minute Facebook Live session conducted on October 25, 2017.

Topics covered include: another example of why it’s essential that you educate yourself on self-defense law rather than presume someone else, even a criminal defense attorney, knows what they’re talking about; the difference between “hard” and “soft” Stand-Your-Ground; whether it’s a good idea to document your specialized knowledge using Mas Ayoob’s “mail your class notes to yourself” approach; the meaning of the term “curtilage” in the context of self-defense law in general and Castle Doctrine in particular; the relevance of Supreme Court cases like Tennessee v. Garner to civilian use of defensive force; whether you’re open to an assault charge if you draw a gun on a home invader who turns and leaves.

Law of Self Defense

Andrew F. Branca, Attorney

In this podcast I explain and explore what Stand-Your-Ground (SYG) is in the context of self-defense law, what would be the consequences of its repeal, how it is frequently misunderstood in application, and also clarify how it is too often confused with the completely distinct legal concept of self-defense immunity (SDI).

A videocast version of this podcast, presented as a slide presentation, is also available at the Law of Self Defense Youtube channel.

Suggestions for future podcast topics, or questions about this podcast, can be emailed to me here.
