Cross-examination

When a Claimant, Defendant or witness has been called to give evidence in court they will give their evidence in chief. The opposing side then has the right to cross-examine them on their evidence. The main purpose of cross-examination is to elicit evidence in support of your case, to cast doubt on, or undermine the witness’s evidence and credibility and to weaken your opponent’s case and/or to challenge disputed evidence.

After being cross-examined, the witness may be re-examined by the barrister from their own side.
