Despite the obvious importance of jury instructions—the framework through which the jury will interpret admitted evidence to reach a verdict—common mistakes persist that produce a disservice to clients while also hampering judicial economy. In this CLE, the Honorable Christine M. Arguello, together with her law clerks, Deanna Tamborelli and E. Peter Selimos, will draw from decades of experience to offer litigators tips on best practices for producing concise and accurate jury instructions.

Some of the topics to be discussed include:

- The importance of jury instructions and the extent to which deficient instructions could cost your client its case,

- Step-by-step instructions on how to craft proposed jury instructions, and

- How to advocate for proposed instructions that benefit your client without diminishing your credibility with the Court.

2 general CLE credits granted. 

HOLD THE DATE: FFA Roundtable will be held November 1, 2024 in Denver. More details to come as the date approaches.
