Commitment. A legal construct which represents the undertaking on the part of some party to act or refrain from acting in some manner.
Issues and Challenges
The undertaking by some party to act or refrain from acting results in an obligation on the part of that party, and usually results in the existence of some corresponding right on the party of some other party, in the event that the commitment is to such party. Thus Obligations and Rights are considered as reciprocal aspects of this Commitment concept.
