Criminal Model Jury Instructions for Use in the District Court

The District Court Committee on Criminal Proceedings has recently revised several model jury  instructions, as well as preparing six new Criminal Model Jury Instructions.   The new instructions are:  Failure to Have Ignition Interlock Device, Disabling an Ignition Interlock Device, Wilful Interference with a Fire Fighting Operation, Cruelty to Animals, Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor, and Improper Storage of a firearm.

The Trial Court Law Libraries have copies of Civil and Criminal Jury Instructions for District and Superior Court.  Our holdings also include jury instructions for particular areas of law, which may be contained in treatises on the topic. Examples include Workplace Harassment, Residential Landlord-Tenant issues, and Property Insurance Litigation.
