A committal hearing refers to an administrative process in the Local Court to determine whether an indictable offence should be referred to a higher court.

Its purpose is centred on having charges dismissed and the alleged being discharged by a magistrate without further pursuing the matter by trial. Other reasons for a committal hearing is to discover all evidence against you, and to find out further details surrounding the case so that you can prepare for your trial.

Having a committal hearing is not a right, but an application must be filled that satisfies the necessary requirements.
