Model Patent Jury Instructions

The 2024 Model Patent Jury Instructions are a neutral set of jury instructions that are not biased in favor of either the patent owner or the accused infringer.

These Instructions are not intended to address every conceivable issue that might arise in patent litigation. Instead, guidance is provided on those issues that typically arise in patent litigation and that have clear precedential support. The litigants must tailor these instructions to the specific issues in their particular case and to eliminate superfluous or confusing instructions. It is also intended that these instructions will be used in conjunction with other instructions dealing with issues that are not specific to patent law.
