This second edition is fully updated to reflect the Florida Supreme Court's approval of the publication of new standard jury instructions for civil cases. Prepared by Florida attorneys and the LexisNexis editorial staff, reviewed by appellate and retired trial court judges, this is the only publication to cover general civil, tort and contract litigation instructions in one comprehensive research source.

Coverage includes basic concepts and procedures governing instructions for any stage of a civil action, a comprehensive section on breach of contract and a plethora of material on tort actions. In every area covered, pattern instructions are accompanied by:

•  The cases or statutory authorities on which the instruction is based
•  A use of Instruction that explains how and when an instruction should be used with guidelines for using alternative provisions
•  A Comment that provides a brief legal background, advice in areas where there is a conflict of law or where there is an issue of trial strategy
•  References that tie the work to other chapters in the set and to other Matthew Bender publications for further clarification of the law
