A contract may be invalidated even if a change in legislation or regulation occurs after an agreement has been reached, but before the contract is carried out, if the legal activities previously described in the document are now considered illegal. If the parties do so in spite of everything, the contract is generally null and for the most part. The reason is that Parliament intended to prohibit the nature of the agreement, and that intention takes legal effect by the courts. Reasons for cancelling a contract include the use of illegal means, the lack of knowledge of the conclusion of the contract, the overloading of the impossibility, etc. For example, if A enters into a contract with B for smuggling contraband into a city, the law does not provide for such an agreement to be applicable.

That is why the court is leaving; not for the defendant, but because they do not provide assistance to such a [plaintiff]. Therefore, if the [plaintiff] and the defendant changed sides and the defendant brought his action against the [plaintiff], the plaintiff would have the advantage; indeed, if both were equally responsible, potior is conditio defendentis [where both parties are wrong and where the plaintiff can only be done in the event of theft, better the defendant`s position] The law of illegality with respect to business contracts is governed by the common law.
