Description This paper will target the issue of legal procedures and their accessibility for a common layman. With the omnipresence of the Internet, the question of communication of law acquires a new platform. Legal firms and other private entities offer their own reproduction of the legal texts, restating law in a more (?) accessible language. One must ask why this common practice has not reached the institutions of the Czech Republic. There is a lack of information on how to access the courts, how to file a claim. State/government should feel responsible to (successfully) attempt to communicate the law to laypersons.
