Extradition under the European Arrest Warrant

Thursday 29 September 2016, from 4pm to 6pm

The Boardroom, University of Westminster, 309 Regent Street, London W1B 2U

There are a number of agreements requiring courts and other judicial authorities in EU member states to give effect to judgments and orders issued by similar bodies in other EU countries. The European Arrest Warrant (« EAW ») is the most popular of these « mutual recognition » measures. The operation of the EAW through the UK’s Extradition Act has given rise to problems between British and French authorities in particular.

What will happen now that the UK has voted to leave the European Union? Is this a threat to EU/UK criminal co-operation post « Brexit » or is this an opportunity to reform the EAW to enhance its utility?

The event is free of charge and is accredited for 2 hours CPD points with the SRA, the Bar Standards Board and the Ecole de Formation du Barreau

To reserve a place, please email the Administrator at fbls@outlook.com. Numbers are limited and registration will be on a first-come first-served basis

Going Digital – Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Financial Services @ Herbert Smith Freehills
Oct 24 @ 14:00 – 18:00

Our world and the organisations we work for are increasingly shaped by algorithms. They are everywhere, fed by an increasing quantity of data. This conference is aimed at those who would like to understand better what Big Data and Artificial Intelligence are by looking their implications for financial services, by focusing on cyber security, data analytics and machine learning – and considering how their organisations need to adapt.

Experts will explain in language accessible to ordinary people what Big Data and Artificial Intelligence are, and representatives of French and British governmental authorities will explain their approach to developing relevant policy and rules of governance. The developing law in the U.K., France, EU and USA will be considered to see if it is keeping up with innovation.

 

This event is organised by the FBLS in co-operation with the Franco British Council.

The attendance fee is £40 for FBLS members and £50 for non-members. To reserve a place, please email the Administrator at fbls@outlook.com. Numbers are limited and registration will be on a first-come first-served basis.
