Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

exceptiō f (genitive exceptiōnis); third declension

  1. (law) An exception or objection in law.
    • 1659 "Vel denique introduceretur nova lege exceptio aut liberatio quaedam; E nam et tunc in praeteritis quoquo negotiis, quorum obligatio hactenus duravit, habere locum, aequum est; non ad id, ut in praeteritum, sed ut in futurum obligatio exceptione recenter inducta resolvatur" Novella decis.

  2. (by extension) An exception, restriction, limitation.

Usage notes[edit]

In the English Courts an exception was formerly termed a 'demurrer' and is now known as an 'objection in point of law'. The demurrer was abolished in terms of Order XXV and a more summary process for getting rid of pleadings which show no reasonable cause of action or defence was substituted. In Roman Dutch Law, the exceptions still pertain.
