Another relevant factor in determining which treaties to negotiate is the priority attached to other law enforcement demands.  Extradition treaties are negotiated by attorneys at the State and Justice Departments who specialize in international criminal law and the mechanisms for law enforcement cooperation among governments.  The same attorneys who negotiate these treaties also negotiate the vast majority of the U.S. Government’s law enforcement treaties, including mutual legal assistance treaties, multilateral conventions, and other international agreements.  They are also responsible for implementing the extradition treaties, including developing outgoing extradition treaty requests and reviewing incoming requests, and handling problems and disputes that arise in connection with these treaties.  In addition, they address policy and litigation issues that arise in connection with international legal cooperation. In the Department of State, these attorneys also provide legal support to Department efforts in the areas of intelligence and combating drug trafficking, money-laundering, and terrorism.  As in any area of the Departments of Justice and State, there are limited resources and priorities have to be set regarding which treaties to negotiate.
