Publication of decisions of the Supreme Administrative Court
Summaries of decisions of the Supreme Administrative Court, considered as having value as precedents, have been published in the Court's Yearbook since 1918. Only such decisions as have later relevance for the application of law in identical or similar cases or are otherwise of public interest are included in the Yearbook.
Approximately one hundred cases have been published in each volume of the Yearbook. The summaries are always written in the language that was used as the language of proceedings in the case, i.e. in either Finnish or Swedish.
On this web site, brief summaries in Finnish are also published of approximately one hundred cases other than those included in the Yearbook.
