The subject of the paper is the analysis of four areas related to legislation in the Slovak Republic. It is an analysis of a) a sources of law, b) a quantity of laws, c) a legislative process and d) a structure of laws. The critical analysis is based on the valid and effective legislative rules, as well as on the available statistical data of the legislative activities of the National Council of the Slovak Republic. The author draws attention to the solid legislative rules and at the same time identifies current problems of the legislative process. The author examines how the quality of legislation can be achieved in a various legal relations in a strongly dynamic society. Based on the outcome of this analysis, the author forms proposals de lege ferenda, even though in the author's opinion the practical legislative problems in the Slovak Republic, have, in a wider context, the political backround.
