Questions of jurisdiction are becoming increasingly important to the investigation, prosecution and punishment of crime. The growth of technology and the internet means not only that crime is becoming increasingly transnational, but also that in some cases it is becoming increasingly hard to say where a crime has taken place. This also causes issues for enforcement agencies as they grapple with jurisdictional rules – for example, around search or seizure of assets – that were in many instances designed for a different era. The challenge, then, for criminal lawyers is whether it is possible to continue to adapt traditional rules governing territorial and extraterritorial jurisdiction to these new circumstances, or whether the situation requires completely new kinds of approaches to criminal jurisdiction.
