Pattern Jury Instructions Builder



This Jury Instructions Builder was developed by the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, using the content of the Civil Pattern Jury Instructions authorized for distribution by the Eleventh Circuit Judicial Council in May 2013, and the content of the Criminal Pattern Jury Instructions authorized for distribution by the Eleventh Circuit Judicial Council in April 2016.

The Eleventh Circuit Judicial Council has authorized the Committee on Pattern Jury Instructions of the Judicial Council to distribute the Civil and Criminal Pattern Jury Instructions to the District Judges of the Circuit for their aid and assistance, and to otherwise publish the instructions; provided, however, that its authorization shall not be construed as an adjudicative approval of the content of such instructions which must await case-by-case review by the Court.
