London to become home to specialty cybercrime court

The UK government is establishing a specialized court complex in London where cybercrime cases will be heard, along with other civil and property related legal issues.

The 18-courtroom facility is the result of a working arrangement between the City of London and the UK judiciary and is expected to be completed by 2025. It will replace aging civil court, Mayor's and City of London County Court and City of London Magistrates' Court.

“I'm particularly pleased that this court will have a focus on the legal issues of the future, such as fraud, economic crime, and cyber-crime,” said City of London Corporation Catherine McGuinness in a statement.
