Online Criminal Jury Charge Generator

Last week, the AOC indicated in a Notice to the Bar not only updates to the Model Criminal Jury Charges (which you can see by clicking here) but also revealed a new online Criminal Jury Charge generator available as of Friday, Feb. 1, 2013.  This includes the ability to:

1) Select the charges that are needed for the criminal trial;

2) Combine them in the order they will appear in the final document;

3) Select the gender of the defendant and automatically change all singular pronouns, such as “he/she,” “his/her,” “him/her,” and “himself/herself” throughout the charges;

4) Select whether to keep or delete the footnotes; and

5) Generate a Word document that can be saved on the person’s computer and edited like any other Word document.

Amazing.  Now if only we could ALL get in-office access to the full Promis Gavel system...

See the Notice to the Bar here.
