Stay on top of the new jury rules with the new Third Edition. It includes sample instructions in criminal cases as well as authoritative commentary, research citations, and caveats to give you the background you need to confidently draft jury instructions in light of new Indiana Jury Rules 20 and 26 effective 2003.

The Third Edition features updated commentary, new and revised instructions, and more:

  • New juror-friendly language
  • New instruction on reasonable doubt, adding to Indiana's Winegeart v. State formulation.
  • Revised instruction on credibility of witnesses.
  • New format for all crime definition instructions.
  • Simplified patterns for defenses on which the prosecution has the burden of proof, and improved patterns for defenses defendant must prove.
  • Complete substantive revision of death penalty and life without parole sentencing phase instructions incorporating 2002 statutory amendments and Ring v. Arizona.
  • New format for bifurcated recidivist sentencing hearings.

    Streamline trial preparation

    An array of forms saves you hours of expensive research and replication time. Instructions are organized numerically so they are easy to use. Notes and comments by the authors include explanations of the instructions as well as references and explanations of relevant cases and statutes.
