Minnesota's Jury Instruction Guides are published by Thomson-West. They can be found on Westlaw (available on the public access computers in the Law Library) and in print as part of the Minnesota Practice Series. Unfortunately, they are not freely available on the Internet.
Our library retains all previous versions of jury instructions, including superseded pocket parts. Please ask a librarian for assistance locating previous versions.
Prior to their publication in the Minnesota Practice Series, there was no official compilation of Minnesota jury instructions.
