This book sets out to give the reader a view into the heart and history of the Supreme Court of Denmark.

Every year the Supreme Court receives a large number of guests from abroad, and they often ask for further material to read about the Court. The Justices of the Supreme Court have also felt the lack of a publication presenting the Court and its work in English, not least when participating in international networks and cooperation.

The book provides a compelling view into the heart and history of one of the oldest supreme courts in Europe. Supreme Court justice Jens Peter Christensen places the Court within a constitutional setting and describes the role and daily functions of the Court. Professor of Law at the University of Copenhagen Ditlev Tamm reviews the Supreme Court in a historical perspective from the Court’s birth in 1661 as a child of absolutism to 2011 when the Court celebrated its 350th birthday. Master of Arts in history and art history John Erichsen guides us through the magnificent premises of the Court located in the heart of Copenhagen in Christiansborg - the palace also housing the Danish Parliament and the Prime Minister’s Office.
