Difference Between Venue and Jurisdiction

Venue vs Jurisdiction

Jurisdiction and venue are words that are related to law. ‘Jurisdiction’ is the authority given to a legal body for hearing a case. ‘Venue’ is the place where a case is heard.

Venue is the place where the suit is filed. In another term, venue decides the locality of a suit. Venue can be any region such as a country or a district or a town or a city.

When talking of jurisdiction, there are three concepts; such as, personal jurisdiction, subject matter jurisdiction, and territorial jurisdiction. ‘Personal jurisdiction’ means the right of the court over a person, and here the position of the individual is not so important. ‘Subject matter jurisdiction’ means the right over the subject. ‘Territory jurisdiction’ means the right over a region or territory. The court does not have the right to hear cases that fall outside its jurisdiction.

As said earlier, venue is the place where a case is filed. In criminal cases, the venue will be the locality where the crime has been committed such as the judicial district, town, or country. In civil cases, the venue will be the principal defendant’s residence or the place where a contract was carried out. But sometimes the parties concerned may change the venue for convenience. And in case a suit is filed in a different venue, the defendant can readily demand for shifting the venue.

Though these two words are related to law and courts, the two words are very much connected. In all cases, the venue of any crime is important as well as that of the jurisdiction.
