European Arrest Warrants are an increasing feature of the legal landscape. Extradition cases can last from weeks to months, yet what takes place at an initial hearing can lay the foundation for a successful case, or a rapid conclusion.

In this seminar, designed for solicitors new to the field, Doughty Street experts on extradition law will provide a step-by-step guide on what to do and what to look out for in Part 1 cases. Participants will be provided with a checklist to keep and use at court to help flag up the essential points and to help with the tactical decisions which fall to be made.

The team will also speak about impending developments in extradition law, such as the European Supervision Order and touch on some of the recent groundbreaking decisions in this rapidly changing field.

Ben Cooper has been involved in the year's most high-profile extradition cases, such as HH v SSHD, Gary McKinnon and Babar Ahmad.

Malcolm Hawkes joined Doughty Street earlier this year and has a very busy extradition practice at both first instance and appellate level.

The seminar will be worth 1.5 CPD points and will be followed by Q&A and a chance informally to ask the speakers questions.
