Draft of civil code of the Republic of Lithuania 1918-1940: failure reasons
Keywords:Draft of civil code, Codification reasons, Civil code of the Republic of Lithuania
The study discusses the reasons that led during the period of restoration of statehood in 1918–1940 to unsuccessful attempts to codify the Civil Code of the Republic of Lithuania, while other neighboring states, including Latvia and Poland, adopted the most important codified act of private law, thus avoiding the obstacles created by legal particularism to apply a unified civil law settlement. National legislation since 1918 began to form and formed on the basis of foreign sources of law, which existed in the territory of the Republic of Lithuania for a century before the First World War. Initially, the law was limited to Russian, French and German civil law, and later, translations of the law were drafted, and the ultimate goal was to finally abandon foreign law sources by adopting a unified civil code for the entire Republic. The ongoing legislative process was halted by the Soviet occupation
