having no legal effect. In the law of contract, certain agreements may be treated as void, and if so they are treated as void ab ini-tio, or 'from their inception' – i.e. they cannot ever have created legal consequences. Examples are sponsiones ludicrae, some, but not all, contracts entered into under error or mistake.
