Defending theHuman Rightto a Fair Trial
This course will focus on the European Arrest Warrant, providing practical guidance for lawyers on how to develop and evidence human rights arguments in cross-border cases.
European cooperation is predicated on the idea that EU member states can trust each other to respect basic rights. In practice this has resulted in high-profile cases of injustice, creating tensions in the relationship between respect for human rights and cross-border cooperation.
These issues arise day-in-day out in UK courts and will become increasingly common as the UK starts to use these laws more and more to transfer prisoners and exchange evidence.
