The Uniform Civil Jury Instructions Committee updated 11 instructions and withdrew two instructions. The committee completed its review of all instructions last updated in 2005, including instructions related to liquor liability and condemnation. The committee also updated instructions in the areas of burden of proof and unlawful trade practices. Additionally, the committee worked together with the Criminal Jury Instruction Committee and incorporated unconscious-bias language into three introductory civil jury instructions, which mirrors language incorporated into the introductory criminal jury instructions.
In 2020, the Uniform Criminal Jury Instructions Committee added unconscious-bias language to general instructions to encourage jurors to be aware of their unconscious biases so they don't influence decision making; rewrote verdict instructions to require unanimous guilty verdicts (per Ramos v. Louisiana); conformed hit-and-run instructions to the new statutory scheme; and revised the controlled substances chapter, including writing over 30 new marijuana instructions.
