Extinctive Prescription, a Means of Extinguishing the Substantive Right of Action and the Forfeiture of the Right to Invoke it
Keywords:extinctive prescription, civil action, subjective right, object of extinctive prescription, effects of extinctive prescription, rules applicable to extinctive prescription, forfeiture of the right to invoke prescription
This article falls both within the provisions of the Civil Code relating to extinctive prescription, its notion and object, the effects of prescription, and, inseparably, within the provisions of the Code of Civil Procedure because this institution entails the forfeiture of the right to bring a civil action, which produces serious legal effects for the holder of the right of action because, once invoked and applied, it leads to the loss of the civil subjective right itself.
The purpose of the article is to present the general legal rule governing this institution and to highlight the procedural aspects that practitioners must take into account in the activity of legal representation.
