Palace of Justice

Palace of Justice or Court of Appeal in Leeuwarden was the court for the three northern provinces of the Netherlands until 2013.
Formally, within the jurisdiction of the court districts Groningen, Leeuwarden and Assen. The Court also functioned as a branch office of the Arnhem Court.

This situation was followed in 2013 by a merger of the two Courts to the new Court of Arnhem Leeuwarden in area that includes almost half of the Netherlands. For the so-called Mulder cases – traffic violations - the Leeuwarden court has a national function.

This neoclassical building was designed by Thomas Adrian Roman and built in 1851. The façade has a Corinthian portico and a pediment containing the national crest.
