Pre-trial review (PTR)

In complex litigation, the court may hold what is known as a pre-trial review (PTR). It is a hearing and is usually fixed to take place up to ten weeks before the date listed for trial. The purpose of a PTR is to:

  • Check that the parties have complied with all previous court orders and directions.

  • Give directions for the conduct of the trial.

  • Fix a trial timetable if this has not already been fixed.

For more information on PTRs in civil proceedings, see Practice note, Trial preparation: the listing questionnaire/pre-trial checklist and pre-trial review.
