In the canon law of the Catholic Church, obrogation is the enacting of a contrary law that is a revocation of a previous law.[1] It may also be the partial cancellation or amendment of a law, decree, or legal regulation by the imposition of a newer one.

Obrogation

In the civil law, obrogation is the modification or repeal of a law in whole or in part by issuing a new law.[2][3]

The 1983 Code of Canon Law governs here in Canon 53:

If decrees are contrary one to another, where specific matters are expressed, the specific prevails over the general; if both are equally specific or equally general, the one later in time[4] obrogates (Latin: obrogat[5] from obrogare[6]) the earlier insofar as it is contrary to it.[4]

This canon incorporates Rule 34 in VI of the Regulae Iuris: "Generi per speciem derogatur" or "The specific derogates from the general."[7]
