How to Write and Use Jury Instructions in Civil and Criminal Cases

Garcia & Artigliere

As part of the Florida Supreme Court’s approval of the total reorganization of the Florida Standard Jury Instructions in Civil Cases, the manual used by civil practitioners and judges throughout Florida, this new appendix outlines the preparation, presentation, and use of jury instructions in Florida civil trials. The appendix addresses the role of jury instructions in a trial, sources of standard and specialized instructions, how to find and apply the law in the form of jury instructions, how to efficiently and effectively organize and present instructions to the judge for consideration, and how to preserve the record on jury instruction issues. These matters are covered from the perspective of both the plaintiff and the defendant.

Bill Artigliere also graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and was Class Valedictorian of his graduating class at Barry University School of Law. Bill Artigliere has been in private practice for seven years and is a partner with Garicia & Artigliere.
