What Is The Process of Extradition?

Webinar Date: August 20th, 2020 @ 11:00 a.m. EST

In today’s inter-linked world, crime easily becomes the subject of international investigations and trans-national court proceedings.

The discussion will cover the subject of extradition as part of the overall international criminal justice system. We will explain the process, including the legal requirements that the requesting country must meet, possible defenses, and the very real political side of such requests.

This webinar will cover:

  • The steps in the extradition process;
  • Does the subject get advance notice;
  • Is the subject entitled to bond;
  • What defenses are available in extradition proceedings;
  • Asylum & CAT (Convention Against Torture)
  • Alternatives to extradition (abduction, expulsion, trickery, luring, or surrender by the host country).
