A valued template for drafting jury instructions, the Pennsylvania Suggested Standard Criminal Jury Instructions includes more than 500 instructions keyed to the Crimes Code. Professor Bruce A. Antkowiak, chair for the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s Suggested Standard Criminal Jury Instructions Subcommittee, calls the criminal jury instructions “a classic area of law that is in constant evolution.” Antkowiak and his committee of 12 other experts, including trial court judges, prosecutors, and defense counsel, maintain this reliable model for both bench and bar, incorporating an accurate reflection of statutory and case law.
