Interpreting a severability clause (1)

Please sign up for the course before starting the lesson.

The term severability is used to describe the ability of a provision to be separated completely from the main part of a contract, statute or other legal document but still leave the rest of the document legally valid. In a contract, this is often dealt with in a severability clause. This exercise includes excerpts from an authentic severability clause, together with the courts ruling on that clause, training your reading and vocabulary skills.
