• Severability

    The ability of a part to be servered from the whole of something. A clause is severable if it is sufficiently independent to de deleted from an instrument without underminding the integrity of the instrument. A severable clause which is void may be deleted, leaving the rest of the contract intact, while a void clause which is not severable would render the contract void. Severability as a principle of legal interpretation is applicable to statutes, contracts, and awards.
