The Juridical Act and the Declaration of Will in Legal Analysis

Will

Location:

Moot Court Room,
Old College

Date/time

Fri 8 December 2023
15:00 - 17:30

This seminar will consider the implications of using the juridical act and declaration of will as categories in the analysis of private law. It will address the difference thinking in these terms makes to how we resolve legal questions and how these concepts relate to other ideas like contracts, testaments, vices of consent and voluntary action.

 

Papers will examine:

·        Voluntariness and the will in the juridical act: meaning and relevance (Claudio Michelon)

·         The structural implications of applying these concepts in Scotland (John MacLeod)

·         Interpreting testamentary declarations of will (Dan Carr)

·         Presumptions, declarations and the will (Susanna Macdonald-Mulvihill)

The event is organised by the Edinburgh Centre for Private Law.

This event is in person only.
