Ready-to-use jury instructions for any federal civil case.
Judges in federal court increasingly require jury instructions to be understandable and free of legalese and arcane language. Modern Federal Jury Instructions (Civil Volumes) allows you to do just that, quickly and cost-effectively. Offering instructions for all aspects of a federal civil jury trial, these four volumes from the 11-volume Modern Federal Jury Instructions save you hours of drafting time and helps you avoid giving jurors erroneous or inappropriate instructions. Inside you'll find:
• General instructions covering such areas as evidence and burden of proof.
• Specific instructions spanning every significant area of federal litigation, from federal securities regulation to patents and civil rights.
• Citations to specific case authority and/or statutory authority to cut your research time
• Official pattern instructions for those circuits that have adopted them, plus notes pointing out any conflicts between the different circuits
There is simply no other guide as authoritative and all-encompassing to help you minimize errors, focus the jury's deliberations, and produce instructions that stand up to even the sharpest scrutiny down the road.
