Modern federal jury instructions

by Leonard Sand. Lexis Nexis Matthew Bender. 1984.
5 volumes. Looseleaf.

Sand's is considered the most exhaustive title on federal jury instructions available. The introduction to the treatise explains that each charge included in this 8 volume set "satisfies the following criteria:" “1. It is an accurate statement of the law; 2. It is expressed in language which is comprehensible to the lay juror; and 3. It is as brief as the two other criteria will permit." Expert commentary on the recommended charges assures the lawyer they will be selecting the most effective language possible.
