v) analysis of the needs of legal information and participation in the development of the public information infrastructure
The Centre has developed, and is currently distributing, an information system, "LITLEX", which is well known in Lithuania. The system is already available on the Internet. The Centre is in charge of the register of laws and other legal acts of the Republic of Lithuania, i.e., in accordance with the Law, and together with the Ministry of Justice, it is in charge of the system which is considered part of the State Register. The Centre takes part in the development of the Governmental information system "VADIS", the programme of courts' computerisation and has already effected part of the municipalities' computerisation programme. The Centre is intended to become the centre of legal information in Lithuania, and projects which in one way or another relate to it would necessarily require the Centre's participation. The Centre is also engaged in publishing the Codes of the Republic of Lithuania (including an innovation i.e., compilations) and other legal literature. Publications of more compilations of legal acts and commentaries on these are planned.
The Centre can boast of having such clients as state institutions, nearly all the banks in the country, advocates, notaries, etc. The Centre's qualified experts, both programmers and lawyers, working in their chosen spheres of activity, contribute to its leadership within the Lithuanian market for legal informatics and satisfy the information demands, both of state institutions, which are the main users of legal information, and other clients.
