Cardinal George Pell's legal team will return to a Melbourne court for administrative matters.

Cardinal George Pell's legal team will return to court to finalise administrative matters, before a hearing that will determine if he stands trial on historical sexual offence charges.

Australia's most senior Catholic denies the charges and is not expected to attend Wednesday's brief mention in the Melbourne Magistrates Court.

It is expected to be an administrative update about subpoenas from Pell's legal team, seeking information and documents from a number of legal firms and health providers.

Magistrate Belinda Wallington has yet to rule on a defence application for access to the complainants' medical records.

Pell, the highest-ranking Catholic official to be charged with sexual abuse, is due to face a four-week committal hearing beginning on March 5.
