At the initial hearing in the Magistrates' Court, if the defendant pleads not guilty, the court will typically set a date for the trial and consider bail. The purpose of this hearing is to ensure that the case is ready to proceed to trial and to address any preliminary matters, such as bail conditions. 

Key Point: In the Magistrates' Court, an initial hearing involves setting a trial date and considering bail if the defendant pleads not guilty. The case does not proceed to a full trial immediately.
