Kentucky Instructions to Juries provides examples of instructions that are uniform, concise and specific. You'll save time and practice confidently with convenient and authoritative instructions.

The Criminal Instructions, prepared by William S. Cooper, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of Kentucky and revised by Donald P. Cetrulo, Former Director of the Administrative Office of the Court, track the language of the statute almost by rote.

The Civil Instructions, prepared by John S. Palmore, Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Kentucky, and revised by Donald P. Cetrulo cover civil instructions generally, including negligence, intentional torts, and other civil wrongs.

References to relevant cases following the sample instructions provide source material to aid the attorney in drafting final instructions. Commentary by the authors, provides essential background information, explains the rationale for the language used in the instruction, and offers illuminating comparisons with similar or related instructions: making the commentary as important as the instructions themselves.
