The success of serving documents has an impact on the smoothness of the proceedings before the administrative court, their speed and on the substantive decision itself.
This article focuses on research results on the specifics of service in administrative court proceedings with a large number of participants.

The Slovak Code of Administrative Procedure1 has established a number of legal mechanisms aimed at speeding up court proceedings and preventing entities from avoiding documents being served
The authors set out to assess whether the mechanisms introduced are sufficient and whether there are any major obstacles within the process of serving documents in the practice of administrative courts that would cause delays in the proceedings.
