Law/Patents
English term or phrase: "in chief" and examine
There are, of course, also differences in the way in which witnesses are examined, on the one hand, in the law of most Continental countries, where it is the President of the Court who primarily directs the examination, and, on the other hand, in English law, where it is mainly the responsibility of Counsel for the Prosecution and for the Defence to examine the witnesses “ in chief,” to cross-examine and to re-examine them.

interrogar, interrogatório, contra-interrogatório
Explanation:
examine the witness -- interrogar a testemunha
in chief -- interrogatório -- é quando o advogado interroga suas próprias testemunhas (o advogado de defesa as testemunhas de defesa, o de acusação as de acusação)
cross-examine - contra-interrogatório - é quando o advogado interroga as testemunhas do outro partido (defesa x acusação, etc.)
As regras do interrogatório e contra-interrogatório são distintas - por isso existe aquela coisa de "tratar como uma testemunha hostil", etc.
