What’s In Store For You At
Andrew's Criminal Law Class?
From: Andrew Branca
Castle Rock, CO

Dear Lawful Defender,

I'm coming to you LIVE Online to teach you personally EVERYTHING you need to know about Criminal Law!

My LEVEL 1 class is, in my opinion, the single BEST class out there to learn about Self Defense law.  It is designed to help you Effectively and Legally Defend Yourself and your loved ones using a 5-Principles approach. 

But self-defense law isn't the only thing you need to know about our criminal justice system.  Often I step out of the bounds of self-defense law to criminal law more generally to answer student questions so they have a truly holistic understanding of what's in store for them should they use defensive force.

I want to share with you that insight.  We'll create together a class that is molded around your specific life circumstances and needs to help you understand the rules and policies of criminal law as well as how to read, analyze, interpret and most importantly ARGUE for different interpretations of criminal statutes.

There is one common goal that ALL our students have:  
To Make Your Life TRULY
"Legally Bulletproof"
Learning Block 1: (Weeks 1-3)
Don't just change the oil 
Self Defense law is important.  It's the oil in the criminal justice machine.  Learning it allows you to "switch to synthetic" and optimize your chances of going free.  But just knowing how to change the oil is only a small part of an engine.  This class teaches you how to take the criminal justice engine apart, piece by piece, knowing exactly how every part works with every other part.  In the first learning section you'll discover: 
  •  What Criminal Law really IS, using its sources, and recognizing its limitations.
  •   The difference between a "Criminal Act" and "Criminal Intent" and how that impacts your case
  • The Legal "Bars" that one must pass, including burdens and standards, and how presumptions and inferences impact the likelihood you will pass this requirement
All this leads up to the meat of the matter...
The "Doctrines" of Criminal Law
Doctrines define WHAT the rules are, and HOW to follow the rules.
Learning Block 2: (Weeks 4-6)
Here's a crazy mash of legalese:  "Mistakes of fact, mistakes of law, strict liability, vicarious liability, causation, types of homicide, intent for attempt, complicity, and conspiracy. "

If none of that makes any sense to you you're not alone.  But what isn't clear can hurt you.  Knowing what the courts do can help you be a better defender, instructor, advocate and friend.  It can save lives.  

But knowledge is only the first step.  Once you learn and truly "get" legal doctrines, you have to make those doctrines work for YOU.  In other words, you have to legally:

Defend Yourself!!
Learning Block 3: (Weeks 7-11)
There seem to be a million ways to defend yourself from an attacker.  And this is also true in the court system.  But in criminal law those defenses can be broken down into just a handful of different types.  They are:
  •  Excuse v. Justification
  •  Self-Defense & Defense of Others
  •  Protection of Property & Habitation
  •  Necessity, Duress & Accident
  •  Insanity & Intoxication
If you don't already know what to do when some guy is threatening your family, you waited too long to learn.  

The same thing is true in the court system.  Knowing what your approach will be before the cops are called could make a HUGE difference.  Knowing how to read, analyze, interpret and ARGUE criminal law will help you solidify your case before it even begins.  

Then you can make your armor bulletproof by identifying flaws in various arguments, knowing how your state would approach your reasoning (as compared to, say, a federal court) and how the prosecutor, jury or judge will see your argument from their perspective given their duties and responsibilities.

Optional Final Exam:
Test Your Knowledge
There's nothing like knowing how you grew as a person.  When lives are at stake it's even more important.  Our final class is an optional exam where you can test what you've learned.  We will correct your test and give you pointers where you may have misunderstood material so you can have confidence that what you're doing and explaining to others is correct.

....But of course, as always, it all comes down to this:

Make The Right Tactical Plan
I didn't just spend time learning the law.  I spent time learning how to dissect it to its core to give you a plan-of-action for ANY circumstance you may find yourself in that is both legally and tactically sound.

Now you can too.  With this class you can analyze any situation and dissect it to the fullest extent of the law.  Then act.  Or teach others to act.  Either way, you

So, I'd like to end this letter where we started...

Become the ultimate expert...

Stop being:

   Partially Knowledgeable

I don't want this for you.  You need to protect yourself, your friends and students from crushing losses that our courts can and regularly do impose.  Life is nowhere near as valuable behind bars.  

I don't know your personal life circumstances...

But I DO KNOW the tools that will keep you legally safe.  

If you're ready to commit and go all in... then I am here, ready to give you the legal knowledge you need. 

But, NOW is the time.  

LOSD currently has over 15,000 customers but...
We ONLY Have 20 Discounted Seats. 
So, BEST CASE scenario, less than 2% are going to get this deal.  After it sells out that's it.  You'll have to pay the full price.  If there's any seats left at all.

Seats will sell out... 

So get yours now at a SIGNIFICANTLY reduced price. They may not be available tomorrow.

Thanks again, and I'm SO excited to see you at the class!
Andrew Branca
P.S. - Don't forget, right now we have our "early bird" pricing on this page. When 20 seats are sold we're going back to full price. So NOW is the time to lock in your seat before this price is gone forever.

P.P.S. - You've got to admit... this isn't a normal "training" event...

This is not JUST about learning criminal law ... this is about BECOMING who you need to be, so you can protect your world.   

God's given you the gifts of life and freedom - I'm here to help you protect it. Come and join me.

Mr. Massad Ayoob
"Taking Andrew Branca’s Law of Self Defense Class would be not only a good idea, but an EXCELLENT idea. I’ve known him for many years. He’s an attorney who focuses on this kind of issue with a passion.  By all means possible, take his course.”
Mr. Rory Miller
"Andrew Branca’s is the best treatment of the subject [ of Legal Defense] I’ve seen. The counselor doesn’t shy away from the complexities of the subject. Yet he has somehow made it accessible, clear, and understandable. The information is invaluable for anyone who teaches or studies self-defense."
Mr. Kurt Schlichter
"I was taping a show today and totally recommended the hell out of Andrew Branca. [His] is the best self-defense law guide since sliced bread."

"This class should be required for any civilian carrying a firearm for self defense! Andrew helped make clear the requirements for self-defense in the eyes of the law, so as a civilian I can understand the boundaries of a 'safe shoot.' I now have a much better understanding of the gray areas, and the potential risks I face if I choose to act in a questionable situation.  Best money and time I have invested in years! "

"Every gun owner should attend these classes. You won’t make a better investment , be confident in carry!"

"I appreciate that Andrew runs a tight ship. By that I mean that he fills the time with useful information. There is no wasted time which is the hallmark of most CLE I take. This is hands-down the best course I've taken in years. And, I actually use this stuff in my legal practice. What a concept!  "
- Thomas E. Sundquist, Esq., New Highlands, CA

"I am a new CCW permit holder and the information in this class is critical to my further learning on how to protect myself legally and financially. The class is packed full of timely information, presented in a clear, concise and funny presentation, to keep you engaged in what would otherwise be pretty boring subject matter. Worth every penny!"
- T. Weber, Sacramento, CA

"Thoroughly enjoyed your course today. Excellent talking points, easy to understand, fun to listen, just a great day of learning something new, refreshing and very relevant."
- Brian O'Halloran, Marshfield, MA

"Hopefully I never have to use Andrew's information, but I am glad to have learned it. Andrew is a very good teacher. He presented it well in a spirited manner and answered everyone's questions. Upon returning home, I quickly tried repeating the 5 elements of a self defense case to my wife and told her about some of the other 'cases' discussed in class. Andrew's class meant a lot to me as a gun owner."

"If you're a responsible gun owner who carries for protection it is essential that you take this course. The law of self defense is more complicated and nuanced that one might believe. Make one mistake and one faces a long prison sentence. It is imperative that one know the law, and know it well. This course and Andrew's book are absolutely essential to the responsible gun owner. The "good guy" as Andrew would say."
- Joseph E. Cantu, ID 
Attended March 11, 2017
"I would recommend the LOSD Level 1 class to all responsible gun owners. You may survive a defensive gun use but how would you contend with a possible criminal and/or civil legal battle with decades of your life and hundreds of thousands of dollars at stake. Andrew's focused and entertaining presentation will cut through the high weeds of legalese and provide you with a clear understanding of the elements of legal self defense applicable to your particular state laws. You are not fully armed without the knowledge you will gain in this class."
- Darrell C, Los Angeles CA

"A must have course for anyone carrying or considering carrying a handgun for self-defense. I've had a concealed carry permit for 20 years, study the topic of concealed carry assiduously, and I am amazed at how much I learned from this course. Outstanding."

"Andrew gave me a perspective that answered a whole lot of my questions from a direction I had not considered before. You always wonder what the law actually says and were do I get the real interpretation. "What can I do?" Instead of trying to find the edge of the boundaries of the law I now look for the centerline of the law. Andrew retrained me on how to think, showing me the safest place to be is as far away from the edge as I can get. That takes a lot of those questions I use to have and makes them a mute point. Thank you!"
