There are other editorial issues as well. For example, the agreement cannot have an obligation to do anything that is the meaning of the word « must. » (a real pet peeve on my part). The term « full power and effect » is a rhetorical flowering that is not necessary, as the agreement would not enter into force at any time and would not enter into force. Then, spelling the word three, and then including a number in brackets, is at best superfluous and potentially dangerous if the word and number are not changed at once (it happened and there is jurisprudence on this idea alone). Idea two is that the agreement should not be automatically renewed. Garner proposes that « the emphasis placed by force and effect may justify the use of the expression, rather in the development (contracts and statutes) than in the judicial opinions. But what is misunderstood is the type of language in the treaty – it is not to convince anyone of anything, so that kind of accent has no place in a treaty. The expression is used in no force and effect and in with the same force and effect, but most of the time you see it in full power and effect. Here are some examples: and each of the agreements and agreements of the credit contract and other credit documents is confirmed here with the same force and effect as if each agreement had been indicated separately and concluded on the date of the agreement; This agreement begins on the reference date and applies in full and enters into force for a period of three (3) years (protection period) during which this agreement expires and does not automatically renew itself, unless the contracting party has denounced the impugned provisions earlier. But some phrases with redundancy are so widespread that they might as well be shown.
Today I spoke to a friend about strength and effect. I then checked EDGAR and found that the phrase was in 2,991 « material contracts » that were filed last month. This makes strength and effect an integral part of the contractual landscape. The dictionary of Garner`s legal use says it has « become part of the legal idiom. » It is another provision that has absolutely nothing to do with the duration of the agreement.
