About the Norwegian Courts Administration

The Norwegian Courts Administration (NCA) is the central administration of all the ordinary courts of Norway as well as the land consolidation courts. The NCA provides the courts with administrative support and plays an important role in developing strategic plans that enable the courts to meet the challenges they face.

The NCA has a strong focus on the importance of creating a culture of efficiency and quality in Norwegian Courts. In order to achieve this recruitment of court presidents and court administrators with administrative qualifications as well as initial and continuous training of judges and court staff has played an important role. In addition there is a continuous work being carried out to improve the comprehensive case management system for all of the first and second instance courts which was designed especially for facilitating a swift processing of cases and ensuring high quality case management.
