THE OVERVIEW OF PRE-TRIAL CONFERENCING
Pre-trial hearings with lawyers are used for a variety of objectives by judges. Status conferences are one kind of conference that is becoming more popular (sometimes called the early conference). The judge is able to oversee the case thanks to this meeting that is convened after all first pleadings have been submitted. Judges use it to set a deadline for finishing all pre-trial procedures and may also use it to set a potential trial date.
Certain types of disputes, such arguments over child custody, may need to be referred to a third party who will attempt to mediate a resolution in some countries. The judge may refer the case to that programme during this hearing if the jurisdiction has such court-annexed alternative dispute resolution (for instance, arbitration or mediation). When a disagreement is arbitrated, a neutral third party hears all sides of the story and weighs the evidence before making a determination.
In most cases, it is speedier and less expensive than a traditional trial. In mediation, a neutral third party mediator helps the parties negotiate a resolution to their differences. The mediator employs a number of strategies to aid in their resolution, but he or she lacks the authority to render a decision. Both mediation and arbitration are often conducted in private, which has the added advantage of assisting the parties in avoiding publicity.

A mediator who is an impartial third party assists the parties in reaching an agreement to settle their issues during mediation. The mediator uses a variety of techniques to help in their settlement, but he or she does not have the power to make a decision. Both mediation and arbitration are frequently held in closed-door settings, which has the added benefit of assisting the parties in avoiding publicity.
