This work provides an English language overview of the field of Lithuanian law. Previously, scholars and other legal professionals lacking knowledge of the Lithuanian language had to rely on scattered translations to conduct research in this area. The authors cover the full range of legal subjects – from torts to property to company law – in an analytic manner, so that the reader will gain the essence of each subject, and also will have a sense of current issues and trends in the development of each area of Lithuanian law. Through this work, Lithuanian law will become much more accessible on the global stage. Practically, foreign attorneys will now have a highly readable guide to Lithuanian legal principles. Theoretically, academics and students will have access to the full range of Lithuanian legal thought, which will be useful in any comparative legal research.
