Virginia Practice Series 3rd Edition, Volume 1.


Jury Instructions is confined to the most common areas of jury trial work – torts and criminal law. Where possible, the language of the instructions is taken directly from reported cases or case reports. Nearly every instruction is followed by commentary that sets forth the legal authority underlying the instruction and, in some cases, an extensive discussion of the law.
