We are an international organisation which aims to represent defence lawyers practising in extradition by creating best working practices; sharing information across jurisdictions; proactively pursuing improvements in procedure; responding to government consultations on legislation, practice and procedure.
We are based in London but welcome lawyers practising in the field of extradition from all jurisdictions.
The objectives of DELF include advancing its members’ education and training in all matters relating to their practice as defence extradition lawyers and encouraging social interaction amongst members.

The DELF Committee and judging panel would like to thank all participants. The standard of entries was high and picking a winning entry was not an easy task. Click here to read the winning essay.
John RWD Jones QC was a superb barrister, specialising in extradition, international law and human rights. He represented clients in many of the leading cases of the day, including Charles Taylor, the former president of Liberia, and Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks. John was also a gifted academic lawyer, with publications including a textbook with Antonio Cassese, the eminent international lawyer, and a leading practitioner text on extradition. John sadly passed away in April 2016 and DELF very much wishes to honour his memory by launching its annual essay competition in his name.
A judging panel consisting of Mr Justice Andrew Nicol, Edward Fitzgerald QC and Edward Grange will select the winning essay.
The competition is open in the United Kingdom to those studying (or enrolled to begin studying in 2018) law at undergraduate or postgraduate level, students of the Graduate Diploma in Law, the Legal Practice Course, the Bar Professional Training Course, trainee solicitors, pupil barristers, and legal practitioners up to 3 years PQE or call.
