European Law Seminar Series: The European Arrest Warrant

19th November 2007

In 2005 the Bundesverfassungsgericht declared the European Arrest Warrant unconstitutional because it did not respect fundamental rights and procedural guarantees. The Commission stressed it was the German implementing law that was at fault and not the EU framework decision, and has hailed it as one of the successes of EU anti-terrorism policy. However, the arrest warrant no longer applies in Germany, and the suspect in the case has been released. It will take a new law from the German Parliament to reinstate the arrest warrant. This situation has prompted the need for examination of the limits of competence in this area as well as the potential impact upon domestic practice.

This event is organized with the UK Association to Combat Fraud in Europe (ACFE).

The seminar carries 1.5 Law Society or Bar Council CPD hours

The price for ACFE Members is £24. If you would like to attend, please register by e-mailing
