Latin Legal Terms


Continuo – this Latin adverb literally means: Immediately; as soon as possible; right away. In practice, usually within the area of Law of Contracts, if there is no deadline agreed for performance of the obligations of the parties, then their performance towards the opposite party is due immediately; i.e. to be done without any invitation needed. Another example is where there is no period agreed for payment of any compensation (for delay or for non-performance). Then these are due immediately after the event occurs. In other words, the party obliged to pay these penalties, should not wait a special invitation for it.
