Title:The liberian world of promise (part I)
Author:Barndt, Richard V.
Periodical:Liberian Law Journal
Geographic term:Liberia
Subject:law of contract
Abstract:Before one can be held to a contractual obligation he must have promised that he would do the thing which the other party is contending he is obligated to do. The fact of promise is not a sufficient, but only a necessary, condition for contract. It is a condition which too frequently gets slighted due to the involvement with what some view as the more interesting features of a particular case. It is submitted, however, that every contract case should first be analysed from the vantage point of asking what particular objection is sought to be imposed on the alleged contracting party, and whether he in fact promise to undertake that obligation. This article view this question from the context of Liberian case law, supplemented by representative American sources. This part of it deals with the question of whether admitted, or proven, statements are sufficient to render the speaker a promisor for the obligation sought to be imposed. Notes; ref.
