In 2013, the National Task Force on Stand Your Ground Laws was convened by the American Bar Association to review and analyze the recently enacted Stand Your Ground laws in multiple states and their impact on public safety and the criminal justice system. The Task Force members are a diverse array of leaders from law enforcement, government, and the public and private health sector. They also include public and private criminal attorneys, academic experts, and other legal and social science experts.
The Task Force has conducted a comprehensive legal and multidisciplinary analysis of the impact of the Stand Your Ground laws, which have substantially expanded the bounds of self-defense law in over half of the jurisdictions in the United States. The study detailed herein is national in its scope and assesses the utility of previous, current, and future laws in the area of self-defense across the United States.
