Postal Rule

...SHOULD THE POSTAL RULE BE DISCARDED? The “Postal Rule”, commonly known as the “Mailbox Rule” is a principle of contract law. This rule is different from the others, though, as it forms an exception to the general principles of the communication of acceptance. It originated in the English case of Adams v. Lindsell, in the year 1818. The postal rule in England states that a contractual offer, when sent by post, is considered accepted when it is sent-as opposed to when it is received by the receiving party. In India, though, the specifications of this rule are different. This rule has recently been at the heart of a lot of controversy, as it is believed that its applicability in today’s scenario is questionable and that the rule is archaic in nature. Writing this paper is of importance is because it is essential to understand whether such an exception is still applicable in a scenario wherein the technological advancements complicate our communication systems much more than the law-makers of those times would have deemed possible. Furthermore, this paper is written in the light of a comparative analysis between the contract laws of England and India. England, like India, is a common law country. Since India borrowed a large part of its systems from Britain, the foundations of legal functions in both the nations are very similar, making it is interesting to analyze how and why certain differences came up. In this essay, we first understand the basics of the rule in England, as......

Postal Rule

...The postal rule is a historical ruling, which came about in a time where the main and quickest form of business communication was by post. Through the decades other forms of communication have been invented which are now much speedier – telex, phone , fax and now instant messaging and email. Central requisites to the forming of a contract are those of offer and acceptance. The general rule in law states that acceptance is communicated, and has been received by the offeror . The ruling applies where the means of communication are deemed instantaneous Entores Ltd v Miles Far East Corpn (1955). The exception to this rule is the Postal Rule. Where post is the requested form of communication between parties or where it is an appropriate and accepted means of communication between parties, acceptance is complete as soon as the letter is posted. Even if the letter was mislaid or lost and does not reach the offeror. It is a requirement that the letter of acceptance has been properly posted London and Northern Bank (1900). It is found telegrams also fall under the postal rule. An issue that rises from the Postal rule is that there is a period of time, where person(s) are in the dark as to whether a contract is in existence or not. Courts have decided that the offeror assumes all the risk, as the offer is still open during the time the letter of acceptance is in the post Adams v Lindsell(1818). The decision was based on the fact that an acceptance of an offer could go on ad...

Rule of Law

...Rule of Law Reading. Parpworth, Constitutional and Administrative Law. Pages 42-44 Bradley and Ewing Constitutional and Administrative Law. Pages 89-101 Another cornerstone of the British constitution is the Rule of Law. This principle is developed from the writings of 19th century writer Dicey who stated that there are three (3) elements to this principle; 1. Nobody should be punished by the state if they had not broken the law 2. One law should govern everyone – citizens and state officials 3. Rights of individuals should not be secured in a written constitution but by the decisions of judges in ordinary law Today the importance of the concept of rule of law is combination of these three (3) elements forming the principle that the state may use its powers only according to agreed rules. Membership of the European Union and the introduction of Acts such as the Human Rights Act have sought to extend and preserve these principles. The one of the result of the Human Rights Act 1998 is that Government actions are potentially subject to more judicial review than previously. The actions of the Government and the judicial response to the perceived terrorist threats are a good example of this. ) A v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2005] UKSIAC 1/2002 Lord Steyn has stated that the decision in this case ‘goes to the very heart of our democracy’ and ‘anchors our constitutional system on the rule of law’ Lord Nicholls stated that......

Postal Rule

...the parties. The rules on offer and acceptance are usually used to pinpoint when a series of negotiations has passed that point, in order to decide whether the parties are obliged to fulfil their promises. An offer is intimation, by words or conduct, of a willingness to enter into a legally binding contract. An acceptance of an offer means unconditional agreement to all the terms of that offer. It will often be in oral or in writing, but in some cases an offeree may accept an offer by conduct, as illustrated in Brogden v Metropolitan Railway. An acceptance does not usually take effect until it is communicated to the offeror. In other words, mental assent is not enough. This was decided in Entores v Miles Far East Corporation. Where parties negotiate face-to-face, communication of the acceptance is unlikely to be a problem. However, difficulties tend to arise where the parties are communicating at a distance. The main reason for the postal rule is historical, since it dates from a time when communication through the post was even slower and less reliable than it is today. It was developed before instantaneous methods of communication such as telephone, fax, emails and text messages came about. Therefore, there is an argument that the postal rule of acceptance no longer serves a useful purpose in the world of modern business communications. Nevertheless, the principle stands. Thus, when dealing with letters or telegrams, the rule still applies. The general rule for the......

The Golden Rule

...world can be transformed if all of the human race followed one simple rule. This simple rule can be found throughout history and in virtually every culture. We know it in Western civilization as the “Golden Rule” or ethic of reciprocity. It simply means treat others as you would like to be treated. Be kind and help others just because it makes your soul smile. This golden rule of ethics only demands that we see beyond ourselves and are willing to treat others better then they treat us at times. It is argued that following in this belief leaves you open to being taken advantage of. Some people will see you as an easy target, weak, naïve even. Since we live in a world where “only the strong survive” and egos are of then more important than morality, ethics are easily thrown out the window. To this argument I bring you to the core value or root of the Golden Rule. It is the willingness to treat others better than they treat you and the knowing that you just might be taken advantage of every now and then, and being okay with it that is important. Our Golden Rule, or variations of it can be found in Jewish literature, Islamic Writ, the Hindu Holy Books, Taoism, Buddhist Udana-Varga, Confucianism, African Traditional religions, and in the writings of many well-known philosophers. The Holy Bible makes many references to this law of ethics. It is in Matthew 7:12 of the English Standard Version that the Golden Rule is spoken by Jesus as part of the Sermon on the Mount, “So......

Writing

...Ernest Hemingway once said, “There is no rule on how to write. Sometimes it comes easily and perfectly; sometimes it’s like drilling rock and then blasting it out with charges.” I agree with Mr. Hemingway. Writing can be easy and enjoyable, or it can be difficult and frustrating. There are times when everything comes together and flows effortlessly and, more often than I would like to admit, there are times when I could pull my hair trying to squeeze out an idea of what to write. Regardless of the headache writing can sometimes be, I am absolutely in love with it. I was not always in love with writing. I was capable of getting assignments like essays, short stories, and poems completed, but not necessarily enjoying the process it took to get there. Everything changed when I took a writing workshop as an elective class in high school. In all honesty, I took the class because I felt as though I was a good enough writer to do well and not have much to worry about. I realized something important in that class, that “good enough” would not be good enough for me anymore. I can remember the exact moment I fell in love with the process of writing. I had an assignment to write a short story, which seemed easy enough. I wrote a quick rough draft about the importance of not drinking and driving. My writing process had always been to write a rough draft that was not very well thought out, to edit a small amount and not much else. I found myself spending more time on that story than I...

The Rule of Benedict

...Benedict: The Rule Context The Christian church has taken on a new social structure as a result of the peace of Constantine. The persecution has ceased and the church has become powerful as acceptance is found for the Christian. The church now becomes open to the influence of riches and comfortable living, and the theology of the church conforms taking on a structure like that of the imperial empire. Aristocracy and privilege is accepted within the church, which leads to lack of discipline. This opens the door to division and scrutiny within the church and its believers. The monastic movement comes as a result from this scrutiny. There are those who believe that that the current security and life of comfort are enemies of the church. They leave for the desert where they seek out a way of asceticism. Paul and Anthony were both monks who sought this life in the Egyptian desert, seeking solitude and a place away from the temptations and chaos. Two generations later Benedict, who was born to Roman aristocracy in the small town of Nursia in 480 A. D., is influenced by this same struggle and seeks to live in solitude. At the age of 20 he leaves the city and lives as a hermit for three years in a cave developing a following of people seeking the same discipline and structure. He builds a monastery in Monte Cassino, where they can practice asceticism. Benedict’s rule is his structured framework for the monastic society. His rule proved to not be as harsh as the monks in......
