Abstract: The paper deals with the principle of prohibition of abuse of law as a special case of acting in violation of good morals in the tort law (especially in relation to § 424 of the Slovak Civil Code). Breach of good morals is being manifested here externally either within the institute of prohibition of abuse of law or within the institute of abusive execution of the subjective rights, where such a breach (conduct that is not in accordance with good morals) constitutes the criterion of assessment of abuse of law, i.e. of such realisation of subjective rights which is not leading towards the purpose pursued by legal regulation.

Key Words: Civil Law; Civil Code; Abuse of Law; Good Morals; Tort Law; Damages; Abusive Realisation of Subjective Rights; the Slovak Republic.
