Actus Legis Nemini Facit Injuriam Law and Legal Definition

Actus legis nemini facit injuriam is a Latin term that means an act of law does no one any injury. The general presumption is that law does not do any wrong. Therefore, no one can be injured by any legal action. Generally, laws are created for the good of the state. Some laws that are for public good may be detrimental to some persons. However, for such detriments there are no available remedies. Law is equal to everyone and therefore, changes in law cannot be made for the interest of a minor group of people.
