    about trialdex

    Trialdex has the most comprehensive and up-to-date collection of searchable official jury instructions on the Internet. Jury instructions are a lawyer's most important resource, and must be consulted at the earliest point in litigation. This site makes it easy to find and compare instructions inside and outside your circuit or state.

    The Federal Crimes Statute Tracker displays a visual history of commonly charged federal felonies. It works like the "versions" feature on Westlaw, with the addition of a redline/strikeout view of the precise changes.

    Trialdex also offers litigation tools, a series of questions and answers that walk you through complex legal problems, and are accompanied by infographics. Once again, a good place to start your legal research.

    For more detailed information, see the trialdex FAQ page.
