Abstract

In Chap.  2 the theoretical concept of the juridical act was delineated and in Chap.  3 it was further explored. A working knowledge of the theoretical concept has now been presented. In the first chapter it was argued that the creation of such a concept is not merely an academic exercise but that such a concept can be valuable and useful. In this chapter I will discuss in depth why such a theoretical concept can be valuable, and I will illustrate the arguments with some practical applications of the concept.
