Motions in limine, exhibit list, witness list, trial brief, statement of the case, jury instructions (if a jury trial). Check your county's local rules for timing and other instructions.

Gigs is correct. But you also might to check your specific judge's trial procedures. They usually give it to you during the initial case setting conference. Some judges require a joint exhibit/witness/jury instruction list where the parties have to work together to submit the documents. Some judges also require a trial brief.

Meshuggah, you practice in L.A. County, don't you? I'm not sure what field of law you practice in but for the personal injury hub courts the supervising judge issued the basic requirements for a final status conference in a general order that's provided whenever you file a complaint.

I imagine the requirements aren't that much different for litigation in L.A. across the board.
