Norway second best in the world in terms of legal certainty

Each year, The World Justice Project measures how people around the world experience the rule of law in their home country. In this year’s report, Norway comes out very well in the survey – only beaten by the Danes, writes

– The figures show that we have independent courts that make the right decisions at the right time, says director Sven Marius Urke in the Court Administration.

He believes that Norway has something to learn from the Danes, who he believes appear to be particularly development-oriented and willing to change.

– They are very focused on the users’ needs and get a lot out of limited resources. The legal proceedings seem simpler and faster than ours and they have generally seen a very practical approach to the issues. It is possible we have something to learn from their results-oriented and pragmatic approach, both in the Court Administration and in the courts, says Urke.

After Norway on the list are Finland, Sweden and the Netherlands, while Congo, Cambodia and Venezuela are in the last three places.
