How should I prepare for a Case Management Conference (CMC)?
Before the Case Management Conference (CMC), you should have contacted the other party to explore the possibility of settlement. At the CMC, you should be prepared to discuss the case.
You should be in a position to advise the Registrar whether there is a possibility of settlement through negotiation or mediation. If the parties have not explored the possibility of settlement, the Registrar will encourage them to do so.
You should be able to inform the Registrar of relevant circumstances, for example, if the matter is one of a series of actions worldwide between the same parties such that the parties are already coordinating a global settlement plan; or if the matter is a longstanding dispute where negotiations have failed and the parties wish the Registrar to make an expeditious determination of the matter at hand.
