LL.M. Degree "Release in Law of Obligations" 2013

In this work, I have studied the legal characteristics of release of contractual obligations from historical, comparative and practical perspectives. At the time I have started my LL.M. degree release was just defined in Turkish law of obligations for the first time in the new law of obligations at 2011. The article on release was in line with European perspective thus defining it as a contract. I have argued that release or discharge of claims in contract should be regulated as a unilateral declaration of intent to be bound rather than a contract. My argument had grounds from both comparative perspective and practical perspective. From comparative perspective Common Law doctrine of consideration and some Civil Law scholars' ideas on de lege faranda regulation of release were most important endorsement for my claims and from the practical perspective, the inefficiency of debtor's claims and tediousness of his obligations against a creditor who refuses to take delivery of the debt were my final proofs. In this regard I demonstrated that if a creditor does not want to receive a debt owed to him, he will not receive it no matter what the debtor does. The only argument against this is the idea of debtor having a right to at least try to deliver his debt because otherwise debtor might be seen as weak in commercial arena thus damaging his or the company's reputation. I have argued that as long as debtor does not agrees to a release and can show that he was ready to perform if not for the creditor's action he cannot be damaged in this regard but he can be damaged when release is a contract and he agrees to it. This thesis has been written in Turkish but you can reach it from here and examine my comprehensive and exhausting references to back up my ideas.
