What is a pre-trial conference?

A pretrial conference is a meeting where the lawyers in a lawsuit meet with the judge assigned to hear the trial in order to iron out any trial preparation issues that may still exist in order to avoid having them crop up at the time of trial and cause a delay in the trial date. Typically, issues such as this are treated, discussed and resolved. The parties to the lawsuit are usually not permitted to be part of the pretrial conference, because it is essentially a procedural step. No testimony from parties or witnesses will be taken.
