If you are interested in writing more effective criminal jury instructions, you won’t want to miss the Criminal Law Section’s webinar CLE this month.
Presenters Jordan Kilby and Colin Stephens will discuss issues with relying solely on the model jury instructions and offer tips on writing instructions in preparation for criminal trials.
Kilby worked as a public defender in Missoula and in private criminal defense for a year before taking her current job as a Missoula County deputy county attorney, where she has handled cases ranging from traffic misdemeanors to homicides.
Stephens is an attorney practicing exclusively criminal defense. He tries cases and has repeatedly argued with and before the Montana Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. He presently works for Smith & Stephens P.C. in Missoula.
