Solør District Court (Norwegian: Solør tingrett) was the district court serving the municipalities Våler, Åsnes and Grue in Norway.

It was created in 1847 when Solør og Odalen District Court was split in two; Solør and Vinger and Odal. The headquarters were at Flisa. In 2006 Solør District Court ceased to exist. Grue was transferred to Vinger and Odal, which was renamed Glåmdal District Court, whereas Våler and Åsnes were transferred to Sør-Østerdal District Court.[1]
