The law makers and jurists have never shown clear interest in the issue of the law applicable to unilateral undertakings (acte juridique unilatéral). This is the case under Jordanian law despite the fact that unilateral undertaking is deemed under one of the general sources of rights (obligations). Accordingly, it shall be assumed that the general rule shall be subject to the same provisions that are applied to contracts, and therefore, it shall be applied to unilateral undertakings, including those relating to conflict of laws that govern this issue.

This study explores the extent to which the law applicable to contracts is suitable to be applied in the field of unilateral undertakings.
