An Agreement Opposed To Public Policy

Similarly, an agreement to exempt a person from the consequences of his criminal act is not applicable, as it recognizes public order. An agreement is not considered legal if it complies with public order. The doctrine of public policy is based on the maxim “ex turpi causa non oritur actio”, which means that an agreement against public policy would be ineffective. The notion of public policy does not have an exhaustive definition, as it is fluctuating and very uncertain. . . .
