English term or phrase: "checked expert witness with the Law Society"
expert cité comme témoin ... mais je ne comprends pas le "checked" auprès du Conseil de l'Ordre des Juristes.

French translation:Vérifiez auprès du Conseil de l'Ordre des Juristes les crédentiels des témoins experts.
Explanation:
I am not an expert in the Law field myself, but if I understand this well, an "expert witness" is a person who is an expert in his/her own field and can come to court as a witness to explain certain things pertaining to the court case. For instance, a psychiatrist can come and explain that a person who suffers from this or that disorder would indeed be expected to react in such and such a way in this or that circumstance. An expert in geology could explain that such and such a type of soil exists only at a specific place. Etc., etc.

Here is another example:

" graphology, graphologia, graphologie, grapho-analyisis, handwriting analysis, bad checks, forgery,
forgeries, expert witness, court testimony, hot check, forged check, testimony, handwriting expert,
analysis, handwriting expert"

"What Is An Expert Witness?

An expert witness is someone who has a special knowledge, skill, or experience in the subject
about which he/she is to testify. Testimony given by such a witness, in his/her capacity as such,
constitutes expert evidence or expert testimony. "
http://www.ablehomeinspection.com/expertwitness.html#1

The fact that they check such an expert makes sense if you want to make sure that this person is indeed an expert in his or her field and can be counted upon to provide proper testimony.

expert assermenté... Law Society


Explanation:
Sans trop comprendre la totalité de votre phrase, voici quelques observations.

LAW SOCIETY

The "Law Society" ne devrait pas être traduit. Votre traduction sert bien à explquer aux non-initiés à quoi cela peut correspondre mais, puisqu'il s'agit d'un organisme qui existe, un nom propre, son nom ne devrait pas être traduit. Rien ne vous empêche, par contre, de mettre une note de bas de page ou bien votre version entre parenthèses. (J'ai été 'student member' de la 'Law Society' pendant une étape de mes études de droit en Angleterre).

EXPERT WITNESS

Une personne considérée comme experte dans un domain précis cité comme témoin pour faire bénéficier de son expertise le tribunal. C'est l'équiavlent d'un expert assermenté. L'expert peut être inscrite sur une liste ou bien assermentée pour les besoins d'une seule affaire. Elle peut, par exemple, prêter serment lors d'un procès.

CHECKED

Ici, j'avoue ne pas très bien comprendre ce que fait ce mot dans votre extrait. 'Checked' peut être le participe passé ou bien le prétérit du verbe 'check'. Dans ce cas, le sujet est manquant. Sinon, peut-être d'agit-il d'un adjective, faisant donc référence à l'expert qui aurait été 'vérfié' auprès de la Law Society.

Pour être sûre, il serait bien d'avoir plus de détail, de plus amples infos sur le texte. En gros, je ne comprends pas le sens de 'checked', moi non plus !

Avez-vous plus d'infos?
