It is possible to visit the Supreme Court as part of a study program. This applies to college and university students of a legal program, but high school students are also welcome to visit. However, basic knowledge of our legal system in general and the administration of justice in particular is important in order to be able to have a conversation together.
Guided tours and visits for other groups
Other groups are also welcome to visit the Supreme Court and hear more about the building and the work.
The program of the visit depends on the composition of the group and their learning objective. A presentation on the Supreme Court and its working methods will usually be part of the visit.
