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.
We were delighted to announce at the Annual Conference on Friday 13 September that the judging panel (consisting of Mr Justice Julian Knowles, Edward Fitzgerald QC and Anand Doobay) have selected the winning essay.
Alex du Sautoy of 6KBW is this year's winner. You can read his essay here. All entrants were also given DELF membership for 2020 to mark their outstanding efforts.
The competition will re-open next year but in the meantime, any queries should be addressed to Harriet Devey (firstname.lastname@example.org)
