Thanks all.

In my case, there are a few (3 or 4) cases that I would like to cite - they are almost identical to my case and they were ruled in my favour. Is citing precedent something that is done at case conference/settlement conference or is that really not necessary as long as I refer to a case without saying something like...."in X vs Y, this happened, and this is why it's relevant?". I have heard from friends/colleagues that the reasons as to why I think something is important is almost irrelevant outside of trial as it really comes down to a spreadsheet/maths.

True?

My understanding of these conferences is that it's held in a room with opposing party/counsel and a judge. Based on the above, it sounds like this is held in a courtroom. Is that right?
