    Court interpreting research project- experiment
    Instructions: Thank you for accepting to help me with my research. Would you, please, follow the steps:
    1. Watch the Case Closed two videos: (Who pays for the Root Canal?)
    Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2KAuMbQF8I&t=6s
    Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IH6gy4TQWX4
    2- Watch this explanatory video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qF18...ature=youtu.be

    3- Watch the two Case Closed videos again.
    4- Write down your reflections and send them, please, to me: mar@arabinterpreters.com

    Terms used in the video:
    Obligation, elements of obligation (responsibility and debt), mutual assent (offer and acceptance), unilateral volition (will), promise for reward, undue enrichment, officiousness, officious inter-meddler, tort law, contract.
    Date of publication of this video: June 1st, 2019.

    Note: At the end of the hearing, the patient said she agreed to pay US$25 per month. This is a very little amount, but what the patient did not notice was that by saying “I said I would pay US$25 to them” she was, legally speaking, confirming that: 1) there was a relationship (a bond/obligation) between her and the clinic, and 2) the obligation was a contract. This means she is confessing of her debt, which now must be paid to the clinic in full at once.

    I am using a too simplified way of explaining some terms. WARNING: Lawyers have their own detailed ways of looking at the matter, but this does not mean that the information cited here is wrong. It is based on some legal references.

    Obligation: It is a sort of a legal relation that binds someone and makes him accountable to pay something to another person. It has two elements: responsibility and debt. For example, you pay US$5,000 to a seller in return for a car. The seller has the money in his pocket, but it is still your money. It is a debt. He either returns the money to you or gives you the car as you both agreed (this is his RESPONSIBILITY).

    Contract: The seller says to you: here is the car that I want to sell you for US$6,000. You say: I accept the purchase and will pay you the money. Legally, what happened in this sentence is: 1) The seller has made an offer 2) You have accepted the offer. This is called Mutual Assent. The whole procedure is called a Contract.

    Undue enrichment: This means that someone gets money from a person without returning anything to him. For example, you deposited US$1,000 in the account of another person instead of yours. He must return the money to you, or otherwise he is enriched at your expense without a legal cause (he did not do anything to claim the money).

    Officious inter-meddler: You passed by a house on fire and heard children screaming. No adult was at home. You hurried up and brought equipment and recruited men to fight the fire. After saving the lives of people there, you approached the house owner and gave him a bill to pay (covering the expenses). He says he did not ask you to fight the fire, in the first place. The judge will likely rule in your favor under the Agency by necessity principle.

    Unilateral will: If a mall, for example, makes a promise to give a reward to the 100th buyer and it happens that you are the 100th buyer, the mall cannot retract on its promise. Although there is no compensation in return of their promise (unlike contracts), the mall has to fulfill its promise.

    Tort law: If someone throws a stone and smashes the windshield of your car, he has to pay a compensation because he caused "HARM" to your car.

    Law as a source of obligation: If a worker, for example, is asked by the employer to work for more than 10 hours while the 'labor law' provides that employers shall not oblige their employees to work above that limit, then the employer has an obligation not to do so. If he does, then he must pay a compensation to the worker. Why? Because it is stated in the law. (For the sake of explanation and argument).
