Abstract

In 1928, the Iranian legal system was approached the Western and Roman-Germanic legal system formally, though it was coordinated with Islamic Law in content. There is no separate section under the title of contract law in Iranian Civil Code but most of the legal Articles related to the contract law are listed in contracts and obligations from the Article 183 onward. Articles 264 to 300 of Civil Code of Iran deal with the discharge of obligations. According to Article 264, obligations can be discharged in one of the ways including fulfillment of obligation, cancellation by mutual consent, release from the obligation, substitution of different obligation, set off and recoupment and acquisition of the debt. This paper aims to identify the legal system and discharge of contractual obligations in the civil law of Iran. This research study is of library type and uses descriptive methodology.
