Overview

The Extradition and Mutual Legal Assistance Handbook is the new edition of the previously entitled Extradition Law Handbook. It is a comprehensive guide to extradition under the Extradition Act 2003 and to mutual legal assistance. In addition to providing comprehensive guidance to the statute law, it contains summaries of the leading cases and appendices containing the main statutory and international instruments.

Extradition is a rapidly-evolving area of law and consequently extradition legislation and cases can be very difficult to locate. As the only dedicated sourcebook available, this Handbook brings together legislation and relevant case law covering the European Council Framework decision on the European arrest warrant and the surrender procedures between Member States: European Convention on Extradition; Commonwealth and treaty countries; and UN Conventions. It also includes sections on human rights implications and war crimes tribunals.

This new edition has been expanded to provide full coverage of mutual legal assistance, reflecting the growing importance of this area of law, and the overlap between these powers and extradition. It provides guidance on the relevant statutes and international agreements relating to mutual legal assistance, as well as to the relevant case-law.

The experienced practitioner author team have created a valuable reference tool, offering comprehensive and practical commentary, along with the key source materials and a reliable and rigorous selection of relevant cases required for extradition practice.
