How can you ensure that considerations are taken into account? On the other hand, the “considering” section is fundamentally explanatory and should therefore be one of the few (relatively) neutral sections of the contract, which contains the clearest and most frank statements of the parties during their negotiations. Key definitions used throughout the operational part of the contract are better used in the definition section of the treaty than in the recitals, since the recitals may have no legal value. This is not necessarily the approach taken in practice, as is the case with the 2012 International Petroleum Negotiater Association (AIPN) model for the Joint Enterprise Agreement (AIPN JOA). In the AIPN JOA, the term “contract” is defined in the recitals by reference to the contract for the sharing of the underlying production, the concession of the state, the license, the leasing base or any other instrument related to this particular JOA. The “contract” is defined in the “Definitions” section as “the instrument defined in the recitals of this agreement, including any extension, extension and/or amendment.” CONSIDERING that, on January 1, 2000, the seller, as a lessor and buyer, as a taker, entered into a lease agreement (leasing) for the property which provided an option for the buyer to purchase the property on certain terms; and the parties must respect the application of a full clause of the contract. Such a clause is often found in trade agreements and prevents previous declarations or assurances that are not explicitly included in the contract from producing legal effects. In order to ensure that all relevant information or submissions contained in the recitals are not contrary to a full agreement clause, it is necessary to explicitly include the recitals in the agreement. Another approach might be to declare that a full clause of the contract applies “unless the context requires it otherwise.” Such a qualification is, however, vague and perhaps not desirable, as it can promote insecurity. It should also be noted that the intentions of the parties, as expressed in the recitals, may be important for the Tribunal`s consideration of whether or not a clause in the agreement should be considered. So where do the considerations stop and the operational arrangements begin? By inserting recitals into the contract to put the contract in context or to tell its story, the parties can provide useful guidance for the interpretation of a contract without resorting to sufficient evidence.

The considerations could even give rise to ambiguities in the treaty. Ambiguity in the language of the contract is a typical exception to the parol rule of evidence, which allows oral evidence to be considered. Regardless of the length or complexity of the music, recitals serve important purposes for musicians. The recitals contain a specific objective and a time frame to be implemented. Recitals help young musicians learn about stage presence and self-confidence and manage the jitters. And often, recitals will mark an important step, such as completion to a new level.
