      Eyvind Olrik, Eyvind Gunnar Olrik, 2.10.1866-21.12.1934, Supreme Court Judge. Born on Frbg, died sst., Buried sst. O., who already in 1883 became a student of the Metropolitan School and in 1888 a law graduate, served from 1891 in the Ministry of Justice as an assistant and was also for some years assistant lawyer. In 1905 he became a clerk, but left s.å. the ministry as an assessor in the criminal and police court, where he had been an art graduate as a young candidate. registrar. He had prepared for this deed by thorough criminal law studies which had borne fruit partly in a book on the question of sanity in criminal law (1897) - a more commonly held study - partly in journal articles, especially the major dissertation in Journal of Jurisprudence VI, 1893 on occasional and habitual criminals.He had thus occupied a prominent place among those who literary worked for the modernization of criminal law. In practice, he joined as a member of the Guardianship Council from 1908 (chairman of the Jutland cases until 1916). In 1913 O. passed to the Supreme Court and in 1917 to the Supreme Court; In 1915 he became a legal censor (chairman of the censors in 1923) and in 1923 a member of the tribunal board. His special interest in criminal law he continued to cultivate as co-editor from 1913 of the Nordic Journal of Criminal Law, to which he especially commented on judgments handed down. Valuable to the case law were his annotated criminal law editions and - along with the CDIn 1915 he became a legal censor (chairman of the censors in 1923) and in 1923 a member of the tribunal board.

Valuable to the case law were his annotated criminal law editions and - along with CDRumppublished - systematic summaries of convictions in criminal cases 1895-1914 and 1915-24. As a member of the Criminal Law Commission of 1917, he was given the opportunity in 1923 for a comprehensive presentation of his criminalist view; it may be mentioned here that the rule of insanity of the new law took the form proposed by him as a minority. Of Us' numerous articles, most of which appeared in Ugeskrift for Retsvæsen, there is reason to mention his dissertation Lægens Tavshedspligt (1905, A 197-239). In Tidsskrift for Retsvidenskab he continued for the years 1920-27 the Messages delivered by N. Lassen and for a short time by V. Schau from the practice of the Supreme Court. Finally, Judge Considerations must be mentioned, in which he collected some scattered minor treatises (1929). At the time of its broadcast, O.already hampered by a growing shakiness that eventually forced him to give up his businesses and eventually in 1931 the position of judge. Our business in the Supreme Court, to which he had an extraordinary interest, did not thereby gain quantitatively the significance it could have had. The open-minded and calmly trying assessment of prevailing legal views as well as of human conditions that appear in his always well-formed written statements could, however, for many years have benefited a judicial firm.The open-minded and calmly trying assessment of prevailing legal views as well as of human conditions that appear in his always well-formed written statements could, however, for many years have benefited a judicial firm.The open-minded and calmly trying assessment of prevailing legal views as well as of human conditions that appear in his always well-formed written statements could, however, for many years have benefited a judicial firm.
