The manual begins with an introductory letter explaining the overall competition program and an official team entry form. The rules of competition and the Utah mock trial procedures are then explained. Simplified rules of evidence to be used in the competition are explained. General guidelines for all participants and specific guidelines for attorney-coaches, teachers, and those acting as witnesses, attorneys, judges, and clerk/bailiff are presented. Also included is a timing sheet, a performance rating and comment form, and a statement of facts for the trial of Vincent Taylor v.
