What is Advise?

Legal Definition
To give an opinion or counsel or recommend a plan or course of action; also to give notice. Long v. State, 23 Neb. 33, 36 N. W. 310. This term is not synonymous with "direct" or "instruct." Where a statute authorizes the trial court to advise the jury to acquit, the court has no power to instruct the jury to acquit. The court can only counsel, and the j'ury are not bound by the advice. People v. Horn, 70 Cal. 17, 11 Pac. 470.
