    preside at/over

    Hi guys! Can someone explain me what would be the difference between ''preside at'' and ''preside over''?
    1. The lawyer presided at the meeting.
    2. The laywer presided over the meeting.

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the forum, Heather.

    In this context, I don't see any difference. My preference is for 'over', but click here to read more.
