Usage notes[edit]
  • As a legal statute in Finland, laki is superior to asetus and inferior to perustuslaki. Names of acts are decapitalised. The names of acts are either unhyphenated compounds, e.g. avioliittolaki 'the Marriage Act' (1929/234), or noun phrases consisting of the word laki and a subsequent elative qualifier (-sta/-stä), e.g. laki eräistä asbestipurkutyötä koskevista vaatimuksista 'the Act on Certain Requirements Concerning Asbestos Removal Work' (684/2015). The official names of legal statutes adopted in plenary session following the same, normal procedure include:
  • laki 'act'
  • kaari 'code' (e.g. oikeudenkäymiskaari 'the Code of Judicial Procedure')
  • eduskunnan työjärjestys 'the Parliament's Rules of Procedure'
