Due process was one's right to be treated fairly in a court of law.

Intergalactic treaty prohibited extradition without due process. This was cited in a 2268 communique from Starfleet Command following Commissioner Bele's request to extradite Lokai to the planet Cheron, stating that a hearing at a starbase would be necessary. However, they expected the hearing would grant Bele his request and provide tramsportation for him and his prisoner. This ruling confirmed Captain James T. Kirk's earlier declaration that nobody could claim anyone on board the Enterprise without due process. (TOS: "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield")
