Rule 2174. Tables of Contents and Citations.
(a) Tables of contents.The briefs and the reproduced record shall each contain a full and complete table of contents, set forth either on the inside of the front cover or on the first and immediately succeeding pages. The table of contents of the reproduced record, in addition to the material otherwise specified in this chapter, shall include a reference to all reproduced exhibits, indicating what each is, and the names of witnesses, indicating where the examination, cross-examination and re-examination of each begin. Where the reproduced record is bound in more than one volume, there shall be but one table of contents which shall indicate in which volume each particular part of the record will be found. The combined table of contents ordinarily shall be set forth in full at the front of each volume, but where the combined table of contents is itself voluminous, a cross reference at the front of the second and subsequent volumes to the combined table of contents at the front of the first volume may be substituted for the text of the combined table of contents.
(b) Tables of citations.All briefs shall contain a table of citations therein, arranged alphabetically, which shall be set forth immediately following the table of contents.
(c) Paging of introductory tables.The pages of the tables specified in this rule need not be numbered, but if numbered shall be numbered in Roman numerals: thus i, ii, iii, etc.
Based on former Supreme Court Rule 37, former Superior Court Rule 29 and former Commonwealth Court Rule 83. The rule substitutes the term table of contents for the incorrect term index, authorizes the optional practice of beginning the table of contents on the face-up page (rather than inside the front cover) and authorizes Roman numbering the introductory pages.
