Vigilantibus, et non dormientibus succurunt jura


Vigilantibus, et non dormientibus succurunt jura
The laws assist the vigilant, and not those who slumber. The maxim is grounded on that wise policy of the law which at every turn of life casts upon all persons the duty of exercising some care for their own protection. Bostwick v Mutual Life Ins. Co. 116 Wis 392, 89 NW 538.
