Abstract. The article addresses the issue of compensation for non-material loss as a form of satisfaction in case of infringement of the personality rights according to the Slovak Civil Code. The author points out that the decision on awarding compensation is a matter of judge-made law. The molding of law by judicial decisions not only emphasises their predictability; it envisages the application of law in accordance with its meaning and purpose. A court must take into account mutual relations of individual arguments coming into consideration and to balance their role in a particular case with regard to its specific character and the person whose personality rights have been infringed. In addition, it must reflect the constitutional aspects of this issue, including case-law of the Constitutiona Court of SR and case-law of the European Court of Human Rights.

Keywords: rise of liability for a loss according to the Civil Code; form of compensation for non-material loss; amount of compensation for non-material loss and test proportionality; function of the courts in determination of the amount of compensation for non-material loss
