The Spring 2013 issue of the University of Toronto Law Journal (63:2) focuses on the neglected subject of criminal jurisdiction. In his introduction, Prof. Markus Dubber writes

"Criminal jurisdiction deserves more respect, and this focus feature hopes to make a contribution, however small and preliminary, to giving criminal jurisdiction its due. It aims to start a fresh conversation about criminal jurisdiction, in domestic and international law, informed by comparative, historical, and theoretical perspectives."

In addition to the introduction, the focus section includes articles by Mireille Hildebrandt, Lindsay Farmer, Markus Dubber, and Guyora Binder. The articles have been developed from presentations at a flash workshop at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law on 9 June 2012.

The issue also includes an article by Kelly Bodwin, Jeffrey S Rosenthal and Albert Yoon on "Opinion Writing and Authorship on the Supreme Court of Canada."
