What is Sui Generis?

 , updated on July 03, 2023
Sui generis is a special case that requires unique interpretation, consideration or procedures. This is a Latin phrase that can be translated "of its own kind."

Example

Zoning laws typically cover broad categories of land use such as residential, commercial, agricultural and industrial. The term sui generis applies to exceptional uses of land that require special permission. Depending on the nation and city, this can include things like amusement parks, gas stations, hotels, nightclubs and embassies.
