NC Pattern Jury Instructions for Criminal Cases: Complete Set

Friday, December 1, 2017

North Carolina Pattern Jury Instructions for Criminal Cases (complete set, 3 volumes) are sample jury instructions organized by criminal law topic. Trial judges use them for particular cases based on the relevant law and facts and share them with juries as guidance for reaching a decision in their cases. The instructions are created and compiled by The Pattern Jury Instruction Committee, made up of superior court judges assisted by the School of Government. The Committee creates annual supplements, based on changes in statutory and case law. The 2017 edition includes all recent annual supplements.

An electronic edition of the North Carolina Pattern Jury Instructions (including the most recent updates) is available from CX Corporation, in cooperation with the North Carolina Superior Court Judges Pattern Jury Instruction Committee and The School of Government. For pricing, ordering, and subscription information, visit the CX Corporation website or call them at 800-994-8722.
