Abstract: A norm, $ \vert\vert\;\vert\vert$, on a Banach space $ E$ is said to be locally uniformly convex if $ \left\Vert {{x_n}} \right\Vert \to \left\Vert x \right\Vert$ and $ \left\Vert {{x_n} + x} \right\Vert \to 2\left\Vert x \right\Vert$ implies that $ {x_n} \to x$ in norm. It is shown that a Banach lattice has an (order) equivalent locally uniformly convex norm if and only if the lattice is order continuous. This result is used to reduce convergence theorems for (lattice-valued) positive martingales and submartingales to the scalar case.
