After approval of the new edition of Outline of legal system reform, the second stage of the reform proceeds rather slowly. Qualitative changes are especially missing in the reforming of expert institutions. Discussions arose in the legal society concerning the very regulations of the reform of expert institutions. The regulations specify that the Ministry of the Interior system’s “expert territorial units and specialists (experts, criminalists-technicians) join the police units specialised by branches”. Merely this fact contradicts the statement of the same outline about universal functions of the police. The authors of the article maintain that an attempt to reform the system of expert institutions was launched to implement without an elaborate strategy. The application of special knowledge was divided, on the one hand, among specialised expert institutions of the Ministry of Justice, Ministry of the Interior Affairs, Ministry of Health Protection and, on the other hand, functions of these institutions have been duplicated without foreseeing co-ordination of their activities, creating a concordant system and providing conditions ensuring its activities. The article provides opinion regarding harmonising and development of expert, including research in private, institution’s activities. This should be done on scientific grounds with reference to the basic principle of the legal system reform, i.e. the legal system is first of all reformed for a more efficient protection of rights of Lithuanian people by drawing priorities of the reform and more constant reforming of legal institutions avoiding duplication of their functions, departmental point of view which arises when the institutions self-reform themselves without outside co-ordination of their activities.
