The author of the dissertation “Effect of the European Union Directives: Aspects of Ensuring the Principle of Legal Certainty” analyses the doctrines of the effect of EU directives formulated by the Court of Justice of the European Union, identifies problems of their application in national court proceedings and provides suggestions regarding alternative regulation of the effect of directives. The research analyses the compliance of the rules on the effect of EU directives with the formal (predictability) and material (acceptability) aspects of legal certainty. The author carries out also an evaluation of the compliance of the norms of the Lithuanian civil and administrative procedure that are significant for ensuring the effectiveness of directives in national courts with the principle of legal certainty. The author arrives at a conclusion that the existing legal regulation may cause violations of the principle of legal certainty and provides suggestions for its improvement. In order to find out whether the effectiveness of the directives is ensured in national court proceedings, the case-law of the Supreme Court of Lithuania and the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania in applying the rules of the effect of EU directives is investigated.
