Latin Legal Terms


Constans – it means steady, firm, unchanging, constant, unwavering. In practice, the goal of the parties who sign long-term contracts is to keep their relations constant for a long period of time and in this way to get a security in the activities of the opposite party. The word participates in the legal maxim “falsa demonstratio non nocet cum de corpore constat”, applicable in the area of Law of Contracts. It was used to improve obvious mistakes, providing that if a false or unclear description is present in a contract, then it cannot be void if the intentions of the parties are clear.
