The Q&A series offer the best preparation for tackling exam questions. Each book includes typical questions, bullet-pointed answer plans and suggested answers, author commentary and illustrative diagrams and flowcharts. This chapter presents questions on issues surrounding jurisdiction. The first question enables students to discuss the various heads of criminal enforcement jurisdiction and to demonstrate their knowledge of this important topic. The second question concerns universal jurisdiction. The third question is a problem question asking the student to apply the various heads of jurisdiction to a fact situation and relates to existing jurisprudence in the area. Finally, there is a question, particularly pertinent in the United States about the Alien Torts Claims Act (ATCA), which has a growing body of jurisprudence on international jurisdiction for civil compensation for international delicts and a major pending case before the Supreme Court on the issue of universal civil jurisdiction, Esther Kiobel et al. v Royal Dutch Petroleum Co. et al.
