Supreme Court Committee on Standard Jury Instructions in Criminal Cases accepting applications
The Supreme Court Committee on Standard Jury Instructions in Criminal Cases is now accepting applications for membership on the committee.
The committee is charged with updating the criminal jury instructions based on changes made to Florida statutes and opinions issued by the Florida district courts of appeal, the Florida Supreme Court, or the U.S. Supreme Court. The committee is now meeting approximately seven times a year via Zoom. In-person meetings usually took place in the Orlando area. All appointments are made by the chief justice.
The only open position for 2021 is for an attorney who represents the state in criminal cases. An application form for membership can be found at The Florida Bar’s criminal jury instruction website.
The deadline for submitting an application is May 21. Individuals who have previously submitted an application and who are interested in serving should reapply. All interested parties are requested to submit a cover letter along with the application via e-mail to Bart Schneider, Committee Staff Liaison, at: [email protected].
