Jones on Extradition sets out the law and practice of extradition between the UK and other countries, providing an explanation of the latest issues, procedures and case law.

As well as covering extradition, mutual assistance is also covered with an explanation of how both of these concepts relate to each other and how they apply to specific situations. The author clarifies the general principles including how the law relates to other areas such as human rights and abductions highlighting the issues that need to be considered.

All relevant legislation and treaties are included so that all the relevant material is at hand for readers.

The 4th edition:

  • Covers the principles of extradition
  • Inlcudes the relevant rules both to and from European and other countries and the UK
  • Discusses cases (both reported and unreported) and legislation in context
  • Provides a thorough grounding in the law and practice in this area
  • Shows how the law relates to other areas such as human rights, setting out the law in context and raising issues for your consideration
