    In recent decades, the profile of criminal antitrust matters has changed dramatically. In many ways, this area of antitrust practice has changed more than any other. The U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division's revised Corporate Leniency Program, the landmark lysine and vitamins conspiracy prosecutions, the globalization of cartel enforcement, and the increases in criminal penalties have transformed criminal antitrust practice.

    This practical book provides guidance regarding jury instructions in criminal antitrust cases for juries sitting in judgment in antitrust trials of all types. The instructions in the book are presented in concise and readily understandable language and organized in the same order in which a court presiding over a criminal antitrust jury trial would likely give them. Thus, this book includes both general and antitrust specific instructions, instructions that are appropriate just prior to the admission of the evidence, and those for the close of the case. The book also includes explanatory commentary and references to supporting case law and model jury instructions in a variety of circuits.

    The book covers the trial from start to finish, including instructions for multidefendant/multicount antitrust cases; Sherman Act offences, including price fixing, bid rigging, horizontal allocations and more. In addition, specific issue instructions are covered in detail, including timing and responsibility issues. Witness instructions are also covered featuring material on handling testimony of coconspirators, plea agreements, expert and immunized witnesses, character evidence, and more. In addition, you'll find information on presenting evidence preceding the charge period, other crimes evidence, handling tape recorded transcripts and much more. This book presents a complete treatment of model jury instructions in the complex area of criminal antitrust law. The level of detail found in this book will allow antitrust practitioners and courts across the country to rely on this handbook, and be well instructed of the intricacies of this important area.
