Law Library Model Jury Instructions on Homicide

The 2018 updated Model Jury Instructions on Homicide.

Binder organization: Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court
Date published: April 25, 2018

Introduction

In April of 2018, the Supreme Judicial Court announced the release of revised Model Jury Instructions on Homicide. The Justices first approved and recommended the use of Model Jury Instructions on Homicide in 1999 and issued revised Model Jury Instructions in 2013. The 2018 revised Model Jury Instructions on Homicide reflect new developments in the law since 2013.

The Model Jury Instructions are not intended to be a comprehensive statement of the law, but rather provide guidance to judges on those instructions that are frequently given in trials of homicide cases, except vehicular homicide cases.
