If the State requests preliminary hearings as part of a preliminary hearing, the defendant is present at the hearing. However, some States do not require that there be a preliminary hearing unless the defence requests one. It is important that preliminary hearings only take place if the defendant initially pleads not guilty in his indictment. As an accused, it is important to be present at the preliminary hearing to cross-examine prosecution witnesses and help develop defenses and put yourself in a better position for plea hearings. A PTR is a case management conference where the court deals with various issues to ensure that the case is ready for trial. The purpose of a PTR is for the court to review the readiness of the case, verify that the parties have complied with all previous instructions so that the case is ready for trial, give additional pre-trial instructions if necessary, and agree on a schedule for the trial.

The parties may exchange information to help prepare for trial if the case is still to be brought before the court after a preliminary hearing. In some cases, a preliminary hearing can reach a settlement and completely avoid the time and cost of a trial. In addition, preliminary hearings help the judge fully understand the issues and parties to the case and establish their authority.
Other parties may participate in pre-trial hearings, as these meetings are intended to clarify the issues and administrative details that may be dealt with prior to the hearing itself. This allows the parties to focus on the most important legal issues in the case without being distracted by minor issues. For this reason, preliminary hearings benefit all parties involved. Preliminary hearings can be used in both criminal and civil cases. Although often required by the court, any party to the case may request that a preliminary hearing be scheduled to ensure that such a hearing takes place. It is important to note that some jurisdictions may also call pre-trial hearings pre-trial conferences.
