Be prepared and provide the best representation for your client by having the most up-to-date version of Maryland Civil Pattern Jury Instructions. Don’t go before the Judge with outdated jury instructions that have since been revised or, worse yet, no longer exist!

This hardcopy of the NEW 2021 Replacement Pages replaces ALL Pages in the Fifth Edition. The 2021 update brings this valuable work up to the minute with three new instructions: Breach of Fiduciary Duty (MPJI-Cv 7:8), Private Cause of Action Created by Maryland Consumer Protection Act (MPJI-Cv 7:9), and Intentional Interference with Inheritance or Gift (MPJI-Cv 16:5), updated and expanded commentary, new case law, and statutory references.

The update also includes modifications to commentary to reflect Maryland’s recent adoption of the federal Daubert standard for expert testimony. Commentary has also been updated on instructions relating to spoliation of evidence, trespass, wrongful discharge, and causation in medical negligence, among others.

The book pairs jury instructions with comments and notes on use, providing comprehensive references to relevant case law, making it an essential reference for Maryland lawyers and judges.

The front of the book contains a valuable instructions table to assist you in determining which instructions are new, have been deleted, or renumbered. Additionally, you’ll find all of the jury instructions in one section (The Instructions Chapter) listed by chapter for convenient quick access.
