Briefly explain the role borders play in determining jurisdiction.
Borders are geographical locations that are within a country's jurisdiction. No country can extend its jurisdiction beyond its own borders.
Territorial borders are used to represent the range within which the laws are applicable.
The relationship between physical borders and legal borders are expressed using four elements namely power, effects, legitimacy and notice.
An entity such as a country has jurisdiction only on subject matters that are within its borders.
