The conclusion of the Convention concerning the Memel territory in 1924 laid down the law upon the transfer of the Memel territory to Lithuania on the basis of de jure and de facto. The First Annex to the Convention, named „The Statute of the Memel Territory“, received the special attention of lawyers due to its status and main provisions. Regarding to the dualistic character of Lithuanian legal system between the wars, this source of law had owned a twofold status - as the international treaty and as the constitutional law. The wide competence in the fields of legislature and judicial given to the government of autonomy, provided by the Statute, had a direct influence to the evolution of the legal system of that territory. A distinctive and an independent (from Lithuania’s common) legal system existed, which was based on the laws inherited from Germany and adjusted by France. The Convention gained the status of the unique source of law in the Lithuanian legal system - on the one hand - this source of law was a base for creating a separate legal system, moreover - occupying the exceptional legal place in the Lithuanian legal system, at the same time it was affected and influenced by it.
