This brief webinar course will provide an historical overview of the concept of extradition from the time of antiquity to the present day.  An extradition, as defined by this course, is the surrendering of custody of an accused from one state or country to another state or country to place the accused on trial or punishment.  That process, as discussed in this course, includes a review of regular rendition.  The course will discuss regular rendition (extradition by treaty or statute) and irregular rendition (sometimes referred to as “snatching” without the protections or guidelines of treaties or statutory agreements.) This webinar course will discuss the constitutional basis for extradition in the United States pursuant to Article IV Section Two of the United States Constitution and the federal and state statutes promulgated pursuant to that constitutional mandate.  As part of that discussion the course will review and discuss the “The Uniform Criminal Extradition Act (UCEA ).”

The course will place the procedures for extradition, or rendition, into its proper statutory framework and provide insights into effectuating the extradition from an asylum state to a requesting state.  The course will also provide guidelines and suggestions for the practioner to formulate responses to extradition or rendition proceedings (both interstate and international) through the use of constitutionally based rights of habeas corpus petitions.

Next, the course will provide an overview of the international extradition process through the various international treaties between the United States and over 100 other nations of the world.  The course will provide a discussion of the current status of extradition proceedings between the United States and those nations which have taken policy position against certain types of punishment such as the death penalty. The course will conclude with a look at the implications of the current status of terroristic threats and the concepts of extradition, rendition (both regular and irregular) on world policy.

In 2013, Georgia adopted its new evidence code, patterned after the federal rules of evidence. Almost immediately, there was a divide among legal observers. Many remained fixated on pre-2013 Georgia evidence authority. Others, like ICLE's Carlson on Evidence, provided readers with expansive federal authority to apply to Georgia's new evidence code.

In a series of dramatic 2015 decisions, the Georgia Supreme Court resolved the issue. Federal case law - the Eleventh Circuit's in particular - should be used to interpret Georgia's new and federalized evidence provisions. Notable Georgia Court of Appeals decisions have aligned with this approach.

Since its first edition, Carlson on Evidence has focused on comprehensive, rule-by-rule, comparative examination of Georgia's new evidence code and its federal counterpart. In its fourth edition, Carlson on Evidence has expanded its unparalleled content even further with a wide array of 2015 Georgia and Federal evidence authority and analysis.

Make sure your law library, trial notebook, and appellate binder have the latest edition of ICLE's Carlson on Evidence.
