Lithuania is already in the third year of its European Union membership. This period marks not only a new political phase but also a time of a new challenge for the courts of Lithuania in applying the Community law. Irrespective of the fact that this period is yet very short, it is nevertheless necessary to evaluate the experience of the Supreme Court of Lithuania in applying the Community law as well as to distinguish certain tendencies. Referring to the first tendency, the author defines those areas of legal relationships where the Court of Justice has lately been hearing the greatest number of cases, i.e. the areas where it is possible to expect the greatest change and innovation in the legal regulation. The author maintains that such areas as the free movement of labour and goods, the freedom of establishment and the freedom to provide services, competi tion law and trade marks are the most dynamic areas in respect of the jurisprudence of the Court of Justice, which, in order to avoid lagging behind the reality, are bound to demand the greatest effort from national courts. The second tendency should in essence be linked to the emigration of Lithuanians to other Member States and the development of businesses with foreign partners, which increases the number of cases related with the issues of judicial cooperation in civil cases, i.e. the determination of jurisdiction, the service of judicial and non-judicial documents, collection of evidence.
