The Levitation Act is a law passed throughout the Empire in 3E 421 that banned the use of levitation magic.[1][2]

The Imperial province of Morrowind is not subject to the law because, although it is part of the Empire, the native Dunmer retained self-rule and house traditions. As such, levitation magic was prevalent in Morrowind and Vvardenfell in the late Third Era.

  2. Overheard conversation in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion: "He still teaches, though he lost his passion for it after the Levitation Act was passed. Can't say I blame him."
