Summary/Abstract: The Law on Local Self-Government was adopted in December 2007 and is one of the four basic laws which regulate the legal framework of local self-government. Considering that the innovations introduced by the 2006 Constitution are not so numerous, the process of harmonising the Law on Local Self-Government with the constitutional changes was not difficult. The legislator used this opportunity to additionally modify some provisions, and practice will show whether all the new solutions have been successfully implemented. The most significant innovation introduced by this Law and based on the new Constitution is that the local self-government units have their own property and that it is managed independently by their respective bodies, which, as mentioned above, still awaits implementation.
