What is a legal relationship?
The term “legal relationship” is fundamental in law. It refers to the connection or link established between two or more persons or entities in the field of law. This relationship may arise due to a contract, a legal act, a law or any other fact or circumstance that generates rights and obligations between the parties involved.
In a legal relationship, each of the parties has rights and duties that they must respect and fulfill. These rights and obligations may vary depending on the nature of the relationship and applicable laws.
For example, when two people enter into a sales contract, a legal relationship is created between the seller and the buyer. In this relationship, the seller has the duty to deliver the goods sold and the buyer has the obligation to pay the agreed price.
