Conjunctive Law and Legal Definition

Conjunctive means joined together or combined. In grammar it refers to words like “and, since” etc which connect one word to another word or one proposition to another proposition.

For example, a conjunctive obligation refers to an obligation composed of multiple performances that can be separately rendered or enforced. It is an obligation in which several objects are connected by ‘and ‘and not ‘or.’ For example, a loan agreement's conjunctive obligation may require payment of four loan installments and delivery of a deed of trust. Here each loan installment and the deed's delivery is a separate, enforceable performance.
