The judges

In Norway, it has been a fundamental principle in the recruitment of judges that the judiciary should reflect the broadest possible professional legal background, so that they represent a broad and varied background of experience. For this reason, Norwegian judges - as opposed to judges in some other countries - are not recruited to an internal career in the courts as soon as they qualify. Nor are they recruited exclusively from one particular occupational category.
