Abstract: For each function $f$ that satisfies the law of large numbers with values in a certain class of locally convex spaces with the Radon-Nikodym property the following decomposition holds: $f=f_1+f_2$, where $f_1$ is integrable by seminorm, and $f_2$ is a Pettis integrable function which is scalarly 0.
