Cessante ratione legis cessat ipsa lex

Cessante ratione legis cessat ipsa lex – in practice, this Latin phrase is applicable in the Administrative Law, where it provides that a legal provision becomes invalidated when the reason for this provision has disappeared/ended. For example, an issued order by the major towards the citizens for not walking on the streets and staying home during a hurricane is invalided, once the natural disaster ends and does not mirror the reality any longer.
