ENGAGEMENT

This word is frequently used in the French law to
signify not
only a contract, but the obligations arising from a quasi contract. The
terms obligations (q. v.) and engagements, are said to be synonymous 17
Toull. n. 1, but the Code seems specially to apply the term engagement to
those obligations which the law, imposes on a man without the intervention
of any contract, either on the part of the obligor or the obligee. Art.
1370.
