If warranted by the circumstances of a complaint, for instance its complexity or the foreseeable duration of the hearing, the chair or a vice-chair of the discipline committee may, on his or her own initiative or at the request of one of the parties, convene the parties to a case management conference in order to, among other things,
(1) come to an agreement with the parties as to the processing of the complaint, specifying the undertakings of the parties and determining the timetable to be complied with;
(2) if the parties fail to agree, determine a timetable for the proceeding, which is binding on the parties; and
(3) determine how the processing of the complaint may be simplified, facilitated or accelerated and the hearing shortened, among other things by better defining the questions at issue or recording admissions concerning any fact or document.
