Copies of judgments

Judgments of the Supreme Court of Denmark after September 2009 can in most cases be found in full text (in Danish) on the Danish website of the Court. Many earlier judgments are printed in the Danish legal journal "Ugeskrift for Retsvæsen" and can also be found on the online portal "Jura" of Karnov Group (subscription only).  The journal and the online portal will be available at many public libraries in Denmark.

If you need an official copy of a Supreme Court judgment (in Danish), it can be ordered from the Registry of the Court for a price of DKK 150. The payment must be made in cash or by transfer to the Supreme Court's bank account:

Transportation and parking

Public transportation:

You can plan your trip to the Supreme Court by using the following link Rejseplanen.

Parking:

There are only very few possibilities of parking your car in the area around the Supreme Court and Christiansborg Castle as the majority of the spaces are reserved for the employees in the area. There are a few public parking spaces in Slotsholmsgade and  Frederiksholms Kanal.

Visiting the Court

Most court hearings are open to the public and can be attended without prior notice.

On the annual Kulturnatten (“Night of Culture”) in October the Supreme Court opens its doors from 6-11.30 pm and offers guided tours (in Danish). The tours can be attended on a first-come-first-serve basis, and they last around 25 minutes.

During the month of July once a week it is possible to attend a guided tour in English. More information and the dates will be posted on the Court’s website (www.Hoejesteret.dk) about a month before.

Sometimes the Court receives visits from groups of people who have pre-booked a guided tour and a presentation of the history and the function of the Court. Requests about such an arrangement should be send by mail to Post@Hoejesteret.dk – stating “Visit to the Supreme Court” in the subject line. However, due to limited resources, only a few requests can be met.
