A zealous law student tried to accept the lawyer`s proposal by doing the job, but the lawyer refused to pay him when he tried to cash in the reward. The court contradicted the law student and found that the lawyer did not demonstrate the intention necessary to make an offer. The lawyer`s testimony was not clear or safe enough to make an offer, as he did not specify the starting and ending points of the challenge. The court also pointed to other elements of the lawyer`s testimony to show that a reasonable person listening to the interview should have realized that the lawyer did not intend to make a serious offer. 2. Was the promise that a legitimate offer was made actually made? In a case before the Supreme Court of North Dakota, hoping to buy land from the defendants, the plaintiff drew up a contract of sale, signed it, and sent it to the defendant to sign. [39] The respondents amended the document by writing additional terms and modifications to the existing terms directly on the document. They signed the agreement and returned it to the applicant after these amendments. The restatement states that an offer requires a “manifestation of willingness to make a deal.” Therefore, an offer requires an act that gives another person the power to establish a contractual relationship between the parties.

An offer is made if the other person has the right to believe that “his will is invited to this matter and will conclude it”. [13] This person then has the power to accept. An offer can be terminated in several ways before accepting the offer. The revocation may be made directly or indirectly. In one case, the defendant promised the applicant that he would leave open an offer to sell land until the following Monday.
