As has been proven with both the Heller and the McDonald Supreme Court victories, the courtroom is a prime battleground in the fight for the Second Amendment. Thus it is that for the last 17 years, the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits has featured the National Firearms Law Seminar in an effort to ensure that generations of legal counsel to come will have all the tools they need to win. This latest seminar is proof positive that the strategy is working.

"We set a record with our attendance last year at this seminar," reported Sarah Gervase, National Rifle Association Assistant General Counsel, "and set a new one this year." With over 250 attorneys (and a sprinkling of FFL holders) packing the room for an intensive, all-day class in Second Amendment law, the legal future looks bright.

Featuring lectures from the likes of David B. Kopel, Esq., who was part of the Supreme Court oral argument team in the watershed District of Columbia v. Heller decision and Stephan Halbrook, Ph.D., who was co-counsel for NRA in McDonald v. Chicago, attendees had the chance to learn from nationally renowned experts in firearms law. The all-star team included NRA Office of the General Counsel attorneys Stefan Tahmassebi and Sarah Gervase.

The seminar offers a full day of Continuing Legal Education credit at a very cost-effective $295. "We're sponsored by the Civil Rights Defense Fund and the NRA Foundation," reports Gervase, "so that's how we've been able to keep the price low."
