Administrative Department—a negative reply
to the question put above will be sufficiently
justified. In looking at the organisation of
the Senate from another point of view, it must
be admitted that the co-operation of the leading*
jurisconsults in the preparation of projected
legislative measures and in matters relating
to the administration of justice cannot be
without utility for the country.*

Ministerial responsibility is not a part of the
constitutional institutions of Finland.
Consequently, by interpretation, ex analogia, of the
law of 1772 on the Form of Government,


senators may not be impeached otherwise than
by order of the Emperor and Grand Duke, and
the trial must be before a special " State
Tribunal," composed of high functionaries.
But the provisions of the law of 1772 as to the
composition of this tribunal cannot now be
applied in practice without being modified.

* The organisation of the Finnish Senate, so different from
the contemporary institutions of most States, has its origin in
the old Swedish State Council (Riksrâdet), as it was framed
from 1G32 to 1781). It, too, comprised a section for the exercise
of the judicial power in the last instance.— (Author’s note.)
