Extradition law - recent developments and the impact of Brexit

In an article published today in the Criminal Law Review, Rosemary Davidson, Ben Lloyd and Adam Payter examine the key developments in UK extradition law. The article reviews several significant recent cases on the validity and jurisdiction of the European Arrest Warrant, including the particulars of relevant offences, the bars to extradition, trials in absence and human rights considerations. It goes on to discuss the potential impact of ‘Brexit’ on the UK’s extradition arrangements with EU Member States, including an examination of the potential future models for the UK’s extradition regime.
