Representing Clients in Extradition Proceedings - A Guide to the Essentials
Extradition is the process by which individuals are sought in order to serve sentences of imprisonment or stand trial in other jurisdictions for criminal offences.
Whilst there is a presumption that those requested will be returned to Member States of the European Union or ‘friendly’ foreign States, this introductory level course is designed to assist you through the provisions of the governing legislation in order that you can identify technical defects in the requests and present substantive challenges to your client’s extradition.
It will also look ahead to the likely legal landscape following our exit from the European Union.
What You Will Learn
This course will cover the following:
- Part 1 and Part 2 requests under the Extradition Act 2003
- Taking the delegate through the process from Initial Hearing to the substantive Extradition Hearing
- Technical arguments regarding the validity of the request
