Tingslag is a geographic administrative area for the häradsrätten. The organization of a tingslag is often based on the traditional häradstructure. In northern Sweden the name "tingslag" was used rather than the name "härad". Depending on the size of the härads, you can have multiple härads united to create a tingslag. Multiple tingslag make up a Domsaga. Historically every tingslag had a tingplats (a place of judgement) and later a tinghus (court house). Through the years the number of tingslag have been reduced as they have been combined. By 1971the härradsrätterna and rådhusrätterna were replaced by the tingsrätterna

Tips
