The information was accessed during fall 2016 and represents rulings as of 2015. The outline below incorporates some stand-alone headings, which do not pertain to forensic economics. These headings were included to provide continuity for reading the relevant portions of the rules. Reprinted here are sections of these rules, with complete rules downloadable at the following websites:
