Lithuanian law


During the years of the first republic (1918-1940), Lithuania was already in possession of the principal State institutions. In the period of Soviet occupation (1940-1990) Lithuania was considered by the official powers as one of the fifteen Soviet Republics. All the institutions functioned according to the constitution and in reality, the other Soviet Union laws served only as tools for implementing communist party politics. When the Lithuanian people regained their independence on March 11, 1990 they not only had to re-establish the appropriate legislation framework for a democratic country but they also had to create modern State institutions and invest them with the necessary power. The Lithuanian constitution adopted on October 25, 1992 by a referendum, established the legal framework and the principal functions of the public institutions.
