A “summary case conference” is a Court appearance to determine whether the matter can resolve.
A “summary case conference” is also sometimes to decide what parts of the brief (ie. statements) will be provided to the defence. Because with preliminary briefs the Police will not have taken a lot of statements, it means they will have to go off and obtain them. You can expect Prosecutors to be trying to stop this happening and putting up objections to various witness statements being asked for.you should have your lawyer at the summary case conference to protect your interests.
