11. Pre-Trial Review

The Court may provide for and fix a date for hearing a Pre-Trial Review by directions on paper, at the Check List Review Hearing, or subsequently. By mutual consent, the parties may apply to the PI Master for a Pre-Trial Review by sending a letter explaining the reasons why they want to have the hearing.

At the Pre-Trial Review, all parties must have the necessary information regarding the availability of their Counsel, witnesses and, where appropriate, experts, so that the Judge can fix a reasonable trial date.  At the Pre-Trial Review, the Judge may consider applications for or make such orders as may be necessary and appropriate for the efficient resolution of all outstanding matters, in order to ensure that the action is tried justly, speedily and efficiently.
