Illinois Forms of Jury Instruction (Matthew Bender) provides a practical guide to drafting instructions that accurately reflect Illinois law and are comprehensible to jurors, combining both Illinois Pattern Jury Instructions (IPI) and non-IPI jury instructions. It covers general and cautionary instructions, as well as instructions in the substantive areas of contracts, torts, and statutory actions. The suggested instructions are accompanied by the case or statutory authorities on which the instruction is based, and a subsection explaining how and when an instruction should be used with guidelines for using alternative provisions.
