The Jury Instruction Committee for the Eighth Circuit and the Missouri-Eastern IT department is pleased to announce a new tool with increased functionality for both Civil and Criminal Pattern Jury Instructions. Trial lawyers and judges will benefit from this new tool that enables users to format an entire packet of jury instructions by clicking a few computer keys! Use of the JIB will ensure that the most current Committee-approved version of instructions are being used.
Other benefits include:
- No log-in required.
- Save or print a Microsoft Word copy of selected instructions with or without Committee Comments and Notes on Use.
- JIB automatically generates Table of Contents.
- Reorder and paginate instructions to customize your packet of instructions.
- Content is maintained and updated by court staff in the Eighth Circuit, ensuring feedback goes directly to the Jury Instruction Reporter.
Full details are in the announcement attached to this notice, and a quick instruction guide is attached below as well. The Instructions Builder is now live and is available to bench and bar at:
