Eidsivating Court of Appeal (Norwegian : Eidsivating lagmannsrett) is the court of appeal located in Hamar, Norway. It serves the counties of Hedmark, Oppland and northern Akershus. In addition to Hamar, the court may meet in Lillehammer and Eidsvoll. [1] The court is administrated by the Norwegian National Courts Administration.

In 1998, Wilhelm Omsted was appointed as the presiding judge. [2]

Eidsivating was created in 1995, when the former Eidsivating Court of Appeal was split into two; the Oslo-based section was renamed the Borgarting Court of Appeal, while the northern section retained the Eidsivating name. [3] The then presiding judge, Wilhelm Omsted, became the new presiding judge of the Borgarting Court of Appeal. [2]
