Publication Date March, 2007

The constitutional right to trial by jury has little meaning if jurors do not properly understand the law that governs their decisions. Therefore, jury instructions must communicate the law to jurors. Communicating with Juries aims to provide some basic rules for effectively communicating with juries based on research conducted on legal language, juror comprehension, and plain-English principles during the past two or three decades. In addition to broader principles of clear communication and writing, Communicating with Juries outlines specific principles relevant to jury instructions and makes suggestions for applying these principles to drafting instructions.
