Interim Law and Legal Definition
An interval of time between one event, process, or period and another. An interim is a temporary pause in a line of succession or event. The term ‘interim’ is used in many contexts. These include interim orders, interim reports, interim analysis or interim official. The term interim order refers to an order passed by a court during the pendency of the litigation. It is generally passed by the Court to ensure Status quo. In projects, an interim report is often compiled to analyze how the project is proceeding, before its final completion. Interim analysis is important in medical trials, to ensure that the patients are not exposed to unnecessary danger during the trial. An interim official is a person who is filling an official role temporarily.
