Are you a journalist who needs information or statements related to a court cases? A general query related to the courts?

You can contact the court or judge hearing the case you are interested in. You can also contact the Norwegian Courts Administration. Otherwise you can contact the members of the Judges’ Media Group.

This group consists of judges who have specially undertaken to make themselves available to journalists. They can help the media when statements or explanations are needed from a judge. The objective is a desire to contribute to openness and greater awareness of the courts amongst the general public. The members of the group do not express the opinions of the Norwegian courts, individual courts or other judges, but only express their own opinions.

You can download photographs of the members by clicking on the thumbnail portraits below.
