The next installment in our Trial Education Series will be, “Show Them the Way (to the Right Verdict):  Preparing Winning Special Verdict Forms and Jury Instructions.”

The importance of special verdict forms and jury instructions cannot be overstated.  Both play a starring role in a jury trial, and can make or break your arguments on appeal. You must use a thoughtful and strategic approach when crafting the language you propose for the special verdict form and instructions, and for any objections you make to those proposed by the court or opposing counsel.

Our presenters will address:

  • The top ten best practices for special verdict forms
  • The top ten “don’ts” for the jury instructions and charge conference
  • Practical, real world examples of what works, and does not work, in verdict forms and instructions
