Tadas Klimas, former Dean of the Vytatus Magnus University School of Law in Kaunus, Lithuania, is well known to many readers of this blog because of his active participation in panels and meetings of the Association of American Law Schools and at various international conferences, including the Prague Legal Writing Conference. Tadas is also the author of a very fine book on Comparative Contract Law published by Carolina Academic Press. Last semester he was a visiting professor at Stetson University College of Law in Florida. He has now returned to Lithuania.
We have just learned that on February 16 he was named a Cavalier of the Knight's Cross of the Lithuanian Order of Merit. This exceptional honor was presented to him by the President of Lithuania, Valdas Adamkus during a special award ceremony took place at the presidential palace in Vilnius, Lithuania.
This link leads to photos of the medals and this link leads to an article about the award ceremony; it is in Lithuanian, but you can find his name there in the last paragraph: .
We share in extending our congratulations to Tadas Klimas on receiving this prestigious award and in remembering previous awards given to him.
