Frostating Court of Appeal is a court of appeal located in the city of Trondheim, Norway. It serves as a court of appeal for the counties of Trøndelag and Møre og Romsdal in Central Norway. The following district courts fall under this court of appeals: Fosen District Court, Sør-Trøndelag District Court, Inntrøndelag District Court, and Namdal District Court.[1]

In addition to the main court that is held in Trondheim at the Trondheim Courthouse, there are satellite courthouses in the cities of Ålesund, Molde and Kristiansund. The court is administered by the Norwegian National Courts Administration. The Frostating has 19 judges.[1]

The Frostating court stems back to the traditional thing called the Frostating that was created in the mid-10th century. The current court was transformed from an assembly to a court during the Middle Ages. These courts have changed their names and locations over time and became pawns in the absolute monarchy. In 1797, courts of appeal were re-created to serve the nation, and in 1936 the current court system was introduced.[1]
