This article examines the way the quality of legal decisions has been conceived by the Finnish judiciary and legal scholars. Furthermore, there is a description of how this issue has been regulated within the Finnish legal order and legal system in general. The study classifies and analyses the nature of various quality criteria within a methodological framework created for this purpose. In the end, there is a critical evaluation of the prevailing Finnish doctrine of legal sources and a proposal of more principled approach to legal decision-making and judicial motivation.
