The extradition process contains many checks and balances to uphold international obligations and protect the rights of the person sought. Because these cases are a unique form of international cooperation that deals with the liberty of an individual, it is of paramount importance that practitioners are knowledgeable on all aspects of the process.
Prosecuting and Defending Extradition Cases: A Practitioner’s Handbook is a clear, concise guide to the procedural, tactical, and strategic elements of extradition cases, featuring perspectives from both defence and Crown counsel. Relevant case law and legislation has been compiled and analyzed to offer a thorough understanding of the principles of extradition, requisite legislation, treaty obligations, and protocols.
Unlike other texts on the subject, this resource is practice-oriented. Sample documents, flow charts, and checklists are included to prepare readers for the practices and procedures involved in extradition proceedings. Authors Nancy L. Dennison (acting General Counsel, Department of Justice) and Seth Weinstein (Partner at Greenspan Humphrey Weinstein) have created a comprehensive handbook to guide practitioners through the extradition process from start to finish.
