Although laws vary from state to state when defining your legal right to use force to protect yourself, your home, your property and other people, at their heart, most states’ laws require that any use of force be “reasonable for the circumstances.” This mini course will cover reasonable force and deadly force, as well as the use-of-force continuum and how a prosecutor will evaluate your case. Learn about the defense of your home and defending your property to ensure you understand all laws and how they pertain to each situation.
