The analysis has normative and sociological nature, and is presented from various points of view, including international and national legal systems such as Austria, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Slovakia and Sweden. The research has come to the conclusion that administrative supervision may be used as a feasible instrument for making the courts’ activity more effective. It can improve the organization of the courts’ adjudication and may lead to an increase in the quality of jurisprudence.
