Summary/Abstract: For the past six years, Serbian recruits have had a right, guaranteed by the Constitution, to approach the civilian military service by laying a complaint of conscientious objection. During that period, the civilian service was attended without the adequate law, on the grounds of regulation, which is the act of the lower legal power. By implementing the new law, the proposing authorities tried to set the standards of the international organizations, which deal with the issues of the civilian military (alternative) service with no arms. They also tried to suggest solutions for the potential problems that occurred in practicing that right. Further, there is a minor number of solutions that are not detailed enough or which are not complied with the modern approach to civilian service. Therefore, our goal is to point here to the public experts the advantages and disadvantages of the aforementioned law.
