Courts of appeal
There are six courts of appeal in Finland: Eastern Finland (in Kuopio), Helsinki, Kouvola, Rovaniemi, Turku and Vaasa.
Most of the cases dealt with by the courts of appeal are appeals against decisions of the district courts. In addition, courts of appeal decide, as the first instance, matters of treason and high treason, as well as certain offences in public office.
Another task of the courts of appeal is to supervise the operations of the district courts in their jurisdiction on a general level.
