Extradition law: a practitioner’s guide is an essential guide to extradition law for those representing requested persons. It balances a clear and thorough explanation of the law with practical tips on representing the client and preparing for the extradition hearing. It takes the reader on a step-by-step journey from the initial extradition hearing, to a contested hearing, and on to an appeal hearing. It considers both Part 1 (Arrest Warrant) and Part 2 cases.

This edition includes all the changes to extradition law post-Brexit as set out in the surrender provisions of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) between the UK and the EU:

    • consideration of key points of uncertainty arising from the new surrender arrangements post-Brexit • a new chapter looking in detail at the TCA arrest warrant • a new section on proportionality in light of the TCA • a revised chapter on human rights • the latest case law on bars to extradition and grounds for refusal under the TCA • updated guidance on extradition requests from outside the EU • revised chapters on how to deal with an initial hearing under EA 2003, preparing for a contested extradition hearing and conducting the contested extradition hearing itself • an updated chapter on appeals, including latest guidance from the Administrative Court

Extradition law: a practitioner’s guide is written with the duty solicitor in mind but is essential reading for all solicitors, barristers and appropriate judges acting in extradition proceedings, from the magistrates’ court to the High Court.
