Contract law regulates everything from buying a bus ticket to trading on derivatives markets. Property law defines rights and obligations related to the transfer and title of personal and real property. If the harm is criminalised in legislation or case law, criminal law offers means by which the state can prosecute the perpetrator. What is a Law ?Introduction: Introduction The English Connection: Common law: precedents & customs. Equity: natural justice. Pacta sunt servanda: agreements must be honored. Stare decisis: settled law should not be disturbed.Definitions.: Definitions. Proposal - When one person signifies to another his willingness to do or to abstain from doing anything, with a view to obtaining the assent of that other to such act or abstinence, he is said to make a proposal. Promise - When the person to whom the proposal is made signifies his assent thereto, the proposal is said to be accepted. A proposal, when accepted, becomes a promise.Continued…: Continued… The person making the proposal is called the "promiser and the person accepting the proposal is called the It promise": Consideration - When, at the desire of the promiser, the promisee or any other person has clone or abstained from doing, or does or abstains from doing, or promises to do or to abstain from doing, something, such Act or abstinence or promise is called a consideration for the promise.Continued…: Continued… Agreement - Every promise and every set of promises, forming the consideration for each other, is an agreement. Contract - An agreement enforceable by law is a contract. An agreement not enforceable by law is said to be void.Contracts: Contracts Contracts – Contract - An agreement enforceable by law is a contract. All agreements are contracts if they are made by the free consent of parties competent to contract, for a lawful consideration and with a lawful object, and are not hereby expressly declared to be void.What is a contract? Examples: What is a contract? Examples I promise to bring chocolates to the whole class. Is there a contract? I promise to give you 100 Rs. if ride your bike to Tiananmen Square and back to ICB in less than 2 hours. Is there a contract? I give you 2 Rs. for your Coca-Cola. Is there a contract? I promise to give you a new bicycle if you agree not to eat Chinese food for one year. Is there a contract?Definition of a contract: Definition of a contract A legally binding agreement that means there must be some kind of agreement between two parties However, not all agreements are contracts because not all agreements are legally enforceable legally enforceable means that a court will say that an agreement is a contractDefinition of a contract (cont.): Definition of a contract (cont.) To decide if an agreement is legally enforceable as a contract, a court will apply the rules and principles of the law of contract Therefore, knowing a little about these rules can help businesspeople to create valid contractsEssential elements of a valid contract: (Sec. 10): Essential elements of a valid contract: (Sec. 10) Agreement - Offer & acceptance Legal consequences - rights & obligations Capacity of the contracting parties Consideration Legal object Free consent Certainty Possibility of performance Writing & registration Not expressly declared to be void.Offer: Sec.2(a): Offer: Sec.2(a) An Offer Can be Defined as follows: An expression of willingness to contract on certain terms, made with the intention that it shall become binding as soon as it is accepted by the person to whom it is addressed.PowerPoint Presentation: Essentials of offer It must be an expression of the willingness to do or abstain from doing something. Such expression must be to another person. Such expression must be made with the intention to obtain the assent of the other person to such an act or abstinence. Communication of Offer. : Communication of Offer. The communication of a proposal is complete when it comes to the knowledge of the person to whom it is made. E.g. - A proposes, by letter, to sell a house to B at a certain price. The communication of the proposal is complete when B receives the letter.Acceptance: Sec 2(b): Acceptance: Sec 2(b) Acceptance is the second ‘half’ of a contract. If Bill offers Ben a bag of sweets for 20p, and Ben says ‘I accept’, clearly a contract has been made. The law explains that there must be evidence from both sides of genuine agreement between parties – the old idea of consensus ad idem , or meeting of minds . Acceptance can be defined as: Agreement to all terms of an offer by words or conduct .PowerPoint Presentation: Essentials of Acceptance Acceptance must be given only by the person to whom the offer is made. Must be absolute & unqualified. Must be in prescribed mode or reasonable manner. Must be communicated. Within reasonable time. Acceptance must succeed an offer. Rejected offers can be accepted only if renewed.Communication of an acceptance: Communication of an acceptance The communication of an acceptance is complete, - as against the proposer, when it is put in a course of transmission to him, so as to be out of the power of the acceptor; as against the acceptor, when it comes to the, knowledge, of the proposer. E.g. : B accepts A's proposal by a letter sent by post. The communication of the acceptance is complete, as against A when the letter is posted as against B, when the letter is received by A.Void Contracts: Void Contracts In fact, these are not contracts at all They have no legal effect As we will see in later classes, there are a number of things which can make a contract void e.g. mistake, illegality The important thing to remember is that you cannot enforce a void contractVoid Agreements:: Void Agreements: Agreements in restraint of marriage [Sec. 26] Agreements in restraint of trade [Sec. 27] Agreements in restraint of legal proceedings [Sec. 28] Agreements the meaning of which is uncertain [Sec. 29] Agreements by way of wager [Sec. 30] Agreements contingent on impossible events [Sec. 36] Agreements to do impossible acts [Sec. 56]Void Contracts - Example: Void Contracts - Example Daniel gives his students so much homework that they decide to kill him They pay a Russian hit man 5000 RMB to kill DanielVoid Contracts – Example (cont.): Void Contracts – Example (cont.) However, the Russian simply spends all the money in bars in Sanlitun and then goes home He does not kill Daniel The students cannot claim their money back because it is illegal to hire a hit man to kill someonePowerPoint Presentation: THANK YOU You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
