Unilateral legal act
A unilateral legal act is a legal act resulting solely from the will of the party offering it, and does not require consent from anyone other than the offering party. The latter undertakes to accomplish a given service of their own accord, independently of the acceptance of another person.
Testaments, offers of sale and acknowledgements of debt are examples of unilateral legal acts.
