In December 1895 Wlassics passed a law that allowed women, and Steinberger, to attend Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest to study medicine.[1]

Wlassics favoured the free religious practice. He initiated the establishing of the museums' and the libraries' uniform organization with a national level. King Franz Joseph I awarded him with Iron Crown of Austria. He served as Speaker of the House of Magnates in 1918 and from 1927 to 1935. Wlassics was member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
