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
