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 are delighted to announce that the DELF Annual Conference will take place on Friday 15 October 2021 at the Ashworth Centre, Lincoln's Inn. The Conference will be followed by a drinks reception at the venue. Please click here for more details, and email the DELF Administrator to book your tickets.
We are looking forward to seeing as many DELF members as possible in person after such a long absence.
|ONLINE SURVEY OF DELF MEMBERS: call for evidence|
The House of Lords Constitution Committee is undertaking an inquiry into the constitutional implications of COVID-19.
In particular, it is exploring the impact of the pandemic, and the Government’s response to it, in relation to the operation of the courts. The Committee is calling for evidence on the workings of the courts and tribunals in response to the pandemic and what the future of the justice system might look like as a result.
DELF is keen to relay the experiences of our members from the last 18 months and present their views as to future proposals in relation to the use of CVP in particular. To assist in collating the data that will form the basis of our response to the consultation we invite members to participate in the online survey that can be found here. We encourage all our members to respond and welcome any additional written representations you may wish to make.
Please click here to start the survey. The deadline is Friday 23 July.
Many thanks in advance for participating.
