Styling a list of checkboxes

A co-worker has created a custom field for a form, it only contains a whole bunch of checkboxes. (they simply created the field. Added the options. That's it)

Now by default it seems that you can give some styling with jQuery by giving each <div> element a style. But that means you can either sort the checkboxes and show them all in one line or display them like a list.

However they want to display these checkboxes as:

x       x
x       x
x       x
x       x


Any ideas on how to realise this? It seems difficult as somehow Jira creates these checkboxes all inside their own div element.

Thank you in advance.
