Valantiejus, G. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation

Description

The constitutional provisions of the Republic of Lithuania on relation between international and domestic law ((Article 138, para. 3 of the national Constitution, 1992) formally can be described as establishing the monistic system, which allows international treaties to integrate directly into domestic legal system and even to prevail in case of the conflict with the domestic law (Vadapalas,
2006; Kūris, 2008). However, neither the Lithuanian legal doctrine (Jakulevičienė, 2011; Rimkus, Lučinskienė, 2010, Radušytė, 2001) nor the Constitution of the Republic of Lithuania, unlike the constitutional sources of law in many other countries (Jakulevičienė, 2011) provide an exact and specific interpretation which particular international treaties concluded by the Republic of Lithuania can be directly applied. The presentation explores this problem using an examples related to the application of international trade law sources in the national legal system.
