Picard as Worf's cha'DIch

In the Klingon legal system, a warrior standing trial or challenging the High Council could appoint a cha'DIch, or "second." Since the accused warrior was denied combat privileges, the cha'DIch must physically defend him. The person selected as cha'DIch will speak these words, jIlajneS. ghIj qet jaghmeyjaj. (I accept. May your enemies run with fear.)

Kurn served as his brother Worf's cha'DIch when Worf challenged the Klingon High Council in 2366. When Kurn was injured in an assassination attempt by Duras, son of Ja'rod, Jean-Luc Picard became Worf's new cha'DIch. (TNG: "Sins of the Father")
