Restitutio in integrum

“Restitutio in integrum” is a Latin legal term that translates to “restoration to original condition” or “restoration to pre-existing position.” In legal contexts, the term ‘restoration’ refers to the act of returning a situation or condition to its original state before a particular event or injury occurred. This principle is often invoked in various legal systems to remedy harm or injury caused by wrongful acts. Its objective is to place the injured party in the position they would have been in if the wrongful act had never occurred. Restoration is commonly used in contract law, tort law, and other areas of jurisprudence where damages need to be compensated.
