Vinculum Juris

Latin. “Bond of law.”

“A civil obligation is a bond of right, vinculum juris, which gives to the party to whom it is contracted, the right of requiring by law the performance of it.”  Lapsley v. Brashears, 14 Ky. 47 (Ky. App. 1823).

“Mere acceptance of the notes by such second person will create the mortgage, will form the vinculum juris; but before and until such acceptance there is no contract and no mortgage.”  Walmsley v. Resweber, 105 La. 522 (1899)
