Evidence In Agreement

The origins of the rule lie in English contract law, but have been replicated in other common law jurisdictions; However, there are now some differences between the application of the rule in different jurisdictions. For example, in the United States, a general misunderstanding is that it is a rule of evidence (like the Federal Rules of Evidence), but this is not the case; [4] whereas in England, it is actually a rule of proof.
