Peremptory Instruction Law and Legal Definition
Peremptory instruction means an instruction given to a jury. The instruction is that if the jury agrees to the stated facts and evidence used to substantiate the facts, then the jury should find in favor of a particular party. This instruction is provided by courts in certain cases. This is the power of a court to compel a jury to render a verdict.
However, courts are bound to give peremptory instruction not in an arbitrary manner. Even when a peremptory instruction is given, jurors still have a right to reject the evidence if it lacks credibility.
