Abstract: For many years, an opinion prevailed here that only two sources of law existed: normative legal acts, legal regulations and normative contracts. A crucial turn took place in this regard in the 90´s of the last century. Discussed primarily is the significance of judicature as a source of law, and although an official recognition has not been achieved yet, there is no doubt that it has this signifinance in reality, especially concerning the decisions of the two supreme courts. A specific position belongs to the judicature of the Constitutional Court, which represents the role of negative legislator and at the same time its conclusions are binding towards all, which refers it to the propositional part with no doubt.
