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.
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.
