Latin Legal Terms

Abrogatio

Abrogatio – this term is formed from the word “abrogō”, which means “abrogate” or “deprive of”; which itself has been formed from “ab”, that means “away from” and “rogō”, that means “ask, enquire”. In present days the term “abrogation” means to abolish, or to replace previously existing and valid agreement, for example, with concluding new one. For example, two parties conclude a preliminary contract, but on a later stage they decide to amend the subject of sale, so they abrogate the initial contract with a new one, which will rule their legal relations for signing the final contract.
