Three prominent lawyers receive awards for merits to Lithuanian notariat

Three prominent Lithuanian lawyers, two of them formerly Ministers of Justice, received awards for their contribution to Lithuanian notarial reforms quarter of century ago, on Saturday, December 2 in Vilnius.
Former ministers – professors Vytautas Pakalniškis and Jonas Prapiestis, as well as Professor Vytautas Nekrošius from Department of Law of Vilnius University, received the memorial medals of Juozas Vilkutaitis-Keturakis, established by Lithuanian Chamber of Notaries.
An award ceremony took place at the international conference which was dedicated to the 25th Anniversary of notarial reform in Lithuania.
Professor Pakalniškis took office of Minister of Justice in 1991-1992 and 1996-1999. He took active part in drafting and implementing the Law on Notariat, which came into effect on December 1, 1992. Professor Prapiestis, who is a Signatory of the Act of the Re-Establishment of the State of Lithuania, took office of Minister of Justice in 1992-1996.
