Rules of Evidence
The National High School Mock Trial Championship is governed by the National High School Mock Trial Rules of Evidence, which are a modified set of the Federal Rules of Evidence. No host state may alter the language of these rules without the approval of the National High School Mock Trial Championship Board of Directors; however, the Rules of Evidence may be reviewed for relevance and rules may be added or deleted, so long as the language inserted is the original text contained in the Federal Rules of Evidence.
