California Jury Instructions – Criminal (CALCRIM and CALJIC) California Jury Instructions – Criminal (CALCRIM and CALJIC) provides plain-language criminal jury instructions, including both the time-tested CALJIC and plain-language CALCRIM instructions. The instructions were prepared by a statewide committee of justices from the Court of Appeal, trial court judges, attorneys, academicians, and lay people, and are approved by the Judicial Council as the state's official instructions pursuant to the California Rules of Court, which strongly encourage their use.
